Muslims victim of terrorism: NATO SG

Warsaw—NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that Afghanistan’s security is still a challenge for NATO because fighting and violence remains exist in Afghanistan.
He was addressing a gathering of academic personalities, researchers and Intellectual and diplomats at University Warsaw.
The question of Afghanistan’s situation was raised by Pakistani doctoral research scholar Syed Sibtain Shah during the during the NATO’s congregation. The researcher asked the NATO’s SG that after the death of Mullah Omar and Akhtar Mansour, the central figures of Afghan’s Taliban, do you think the Afghanistan’s security is still a challenge for NATO?
Secretary General of NATO replied, yes by adding that because the important thing we have done in Afghanistan is that we have helped to build a strong Afghan National Army and Security Force. We ended, at the end of 2014, our combat mission, so what we do now is that we train, assist and advise the Afghans themselves because we believe that in the long run it’s better that they are able to take responsibility for security in their own country themselves instead of we fighting and deploying combat troops there.
Another Pakistani intellectual Mr Ifraz Akhtar Advocate was also present on the occasion which was held at threshold of upcoming NATO’s summit. NATO’s summit would be held in Warsaw first half of next month.—SABAH
