NATO chief hails Romania’s Afghan contribution

Oct 09, 2017 - 17:54

KABUL (Pajhwok): NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg has hailed Romania’s strong contribution to the alliance in Afghanistan, according to a statement issued on Monday.

Stoltenberg, who arrived in Bucharest, the country’s capital, held talks with Romanian President Iohannis on preparations for the alliance’s summit in Brussels in July next year and challenges NATO faced and response to them.

 “Romania is essential to our missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan. I have just returned from a visit to Afghanistan and met the Romanian troops in Kandahar. They are making a real difference, helping to train Afghan security forces to secure their country,” said Stoltenberg in a statement.

“Today, we discussed how important it is that we stay the course in Afghanistan, to prevent Afghanistan ever again becoming a safe haven for terrorism. And I really thank Romania for your strong contribution to our presence in Afghanistan.”
