U.S. Won’t Let Afghanistan To Become Safe Haven For Terrorists

Former commander of the United States forces in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus at a meeting with the U.S. Congress Military Commission said Washington’s mission is to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a safe haven for terrorists.
 
Petraeus said the U.S. soldiers should train Afghan security forces to stand on their own feet and defend their country.
 
“Afghans courageously struggling against the resurgent Taliban and a nascent Islamic State [Daesh] affiliate,” he said.
 
The Afghan Ministry of Defense (MoD) meanwhile said insurgents have not been eliminated and Afghanistan still needs military support from U.S. and NATO.
 
“We believe that we will defeat terrorist by the support and cooperation of the U.S. to Afghanistan and to the Afghan army,” MoD deputy spokesman Mohammad Radmanish said.
 
Meanwhile, Amrullah Saleh, former head of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) said he believes that security forces’ weaknesses should be recognized and removed. 
 
“Security forces’ weaknesses should be strengthened and their strengths should be maintained. Also, the security agencies should be more flexible and the people who are in charge of the agencies, should be assessed regularly,” he stated.
