Chief Executive Officer of the Government met with the commander of U.S and NATO forces in Afghanistan General John Campbell on Saturday where they discussed a number of issues with the main focus being on the future of military cooperation between Afghanistan and the international forces.
Dr. Abdullah Abdullah and Campbell also discussed the recent move by the U.S government to keep troops in Afghanistan beyond 2016, calling it important in their quest to fight terrorism.
Today Afghanistan is a trusted ally of the international community and there is a need for the world to cooperate with Afghanistan in its struggle against terrorism, Abdullah said at the meeting with Campbell.
Referring to the country’s war on terrorism, CEO Abdullah reiterated that as Afghan security and defensive forces continue to fight insurgency, the world must abide by its commitments and supply Afghan troops with the necessary weapons and equipment.
The meeting also focused on the ongoing military campaigns against terrorists in various parts of the country and the role of the foreign troops in counterinsurgency efforts.
