NATO commitment to Afghanistan 'steadfast'


BRUSSELS -- NATO defence ministers Friday (October 25) in Brussels discussed the alliance mission in Afghanistan, reiterating their commitment to fighting against international terrorism.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg insisted at the start of Friday's ministerial meeting that the transatlantic alliance's commitment to Afghanistan remains "steadfast".

"We will continue to support the Afghan security forces as they fight international terrorism and create the conditions for peace," he said.

"But the Taliban have to make real concessions and show real willingness to reduce violence," he added.
