Stoltenberg said in a Twitter post late on Saturday “I commend the Afghan women & men who exercised their democratic right to vote in today’s presidential election.”
Furthermore, Stoltenberg said NATO stands with Afghanistan to create the conditions for peace.
Voting for presidential elections kicked off at around 7 am local time in Afghanistan on Saturday and continued until 5 pm.
