Addressing the NATO Foreign Ministers Meeting in Brussels, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Afghanistan is still part of their agenda and they will discusses challenges the country faces at a session on Wednesday.
Stoltenberg called for efforts to bring reforms in the Afghan government and to ensure stability in Afghanistan.
According to reports, the Foreign Affairs Minister Salahuddin Rabbani on Tuesday left Kabul for Brussels where he will attend the summit.
“The ministerial (conference) will close with a meeting on Afghanistan and our Resolute Support mission. We will reconfirm our strong commitment to Afghanistan’s security and we will get an update on government’s reform agenda,” he said.
Meanwhile, acting governor of Balkh, Atta Mohammad Noor, said the war in the country’s north is not the Taliban’s war; however, it is the outcome of efforts of a number of world powers that want to take the conflict beyond Afghanistan’s borders.
“The war has a root in the Middle East wars. It has a root in the outside. This war has a root in big strategies and the politics of economy, fuel and gas beyond the region.”
