New Afghan mission test of NATO ability: Kerry

New Afghan mission test of NATO ability: Kerry

Jun 26, 2014 - 12:42

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The US secretary of state has commended NATOinfo-icon’s ability to deal with a variety of security threats, including in Afghanistaninfo-icon.

“Today we discussed our coordinated efforts to wind down our combat presence in Afghanistan,” John Kerry said after the NATO foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels.

The participants also pledged continued commitment to combating terrorism and preserving the gains made by the people of Afghanistan, he said late on Wednesday.

NATO had succeeded for more than six decades, because it had always recognised that security threats of the future would be different from the present and past, he added.

“Remarkably, this gathering that is now discussing Afghanistan – 50 nations – has come together and stayed together for 12 years,” the secretary said.

One of the first tests of NATO’s ability to forge stronger and more capable partners would be Resolute Support Mission to train, advise and assist the people of Afghanistan.
