NATO says will hold Taliban accountable on counterterrorism

(MENAFN- Afghanistan Times) AT News

KABUL: NATO Secretary General Gens Stoltenberg has said the alliance will hold the Taliban accountable to honor their commitments to counter terrorism and to not allow Afghanistan to be used by terrorist organizations.

In a press conference after NATO Defence Ministers' meeting, NATO chief said the decision of withdrawal from Afghanistan was unanimous but the tragedy of the Afghan people afterward is heartbreaking.

“We are working to get people out of Afghanistan and resettle those who have left Afghanistan. We have had development in resettling those people in the past weeks.” Said Stoltenberg.

The statements come as there are still nearly 20,000 people waiting to be evacuated from Afghanistan but the mission has stalled and there are reports about its resumption in near future.
