KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The deputy British ambassador on Tuesday said his country would renew its commitment to continuously supporting Afghanistaninfo-icon at next month’s NATOinfo-icon summit in Wales.

Dickson told reporters in Kabul the UK would host worldinfo-icon leaders at the largest-ever NATO gathering on September 4 and 5.

“We confirm Britain would promise continued financial support to Afghanistan at the NATO summit to strengthen the Afghan security forces post 2014,” he said.

However, due to the electoral crisis in Afghanistan, it remains unclear who will represent the nation at the Wales summit.

But President Hamid Karzai has ruled out extension in the date set for the new president’s inauguration.
