Published

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Friday said he welcomed the deal between the U.S. and the radical Islamist Taliban group to scale back violence in Afghanistan.


“This could pave the way for negotiations among Afghans, sustainable peace, and ensuring the country is never again a safe haven for terrorists,’’ reads the defense alliance chief’s statement.

Stoltenberg said that the planned reduction in violence would be a “critical test of the Taliban’s willingness and ability to reduce violence.’’

NATO has been present in Afghanistan since 2001.

It currently has some 16,000 troops on the ground, training and funding local security forces.
