Afghan forces fighting terror on world’s behalf: Atmar
A statement from the National Security Council’s media office said Atmar and Aramaz talked about subjects that would come under discussion at the two summits.
Giving information about preparations for the NATO summits, Aramaz said that preparations for the Warsaw summit had been completed and all the participants would be briefed in this regard at a joint sitting.
He said most of NATO members had expressed their readiness to funding the Afghan security forces for the next three years and one of the important decisions at the Warsaw summit would be the extension of the Resolute Support mission until 2017.
The NATO’s civilian representative hailed as positive a latest meeting of the International Crisis Group (ICG) on Afghanistan in Istanbul, Turkey.
Hanif Atmar thanked NATO for continuously supporting Afghanistan and international organizations, including ICG, for giving the Afghanistan conflict a priority in their meetings.
The national security advisor called as essential international financial and technical support with the Afghan security and defence forces, particularly the Afghan Air Force.
He urged the NATO civilian representative to convey the international community the message that terrorism was not only confined to Afghanistan, but it threatened the entire world and the Afghan forces were fighting against the menace on their behalf.
He said the international community should believe and widely circulate the message that the Afghan forces were not only fighting against local terrorists and extremists but international terrorists as well.
The security advisor said reforms would be brought to the Afghan police at various levels and their strength would be increased in areas the government was concentrating on.
