WASHINGTON (PANinfo-icon): The United States on Monday praised the efforts of Afghan national security forces against the Talibaninfo-icon attack on the Kabulinfo-icon International airport.

“We felt it was positive that the Afghanistaninfo-icon National Police led the successful operation to secure the airport,” State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters at her daily news conference.

She said: “We condemn in the strongest terms the Taliban attack on the facilities in the vicinity of Kabul International Airport early Monday morning."

The spokesperson noted that the Afghan police led the successful operation to secure the airport with ISAFinfo-icon advisors in a mentoring role only.

“Beyond that, we remain focused on working with our counterparts there to discuss a bilateral security agreement and plans for post 2014 on how we can best coordinate on that front,” she added.
