The NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reaffirmed support to Afghan forces while endorsing the ongoing efforts to achieve peace in Afghanistan.

Stoltenberg renewed the commitment of the alliance after meeting with the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

He said in a Twitter post that he had great discussion with the Secretary Pompeo on current security issues.

Furthermore, Stoltenberg said “NATO fully supports efforts to achieve peace in Afghanistan. I condemn recent horrific attacks & NATO remains committed to supporting Afghan forces.”

This comes as the U.S. envoy for Afghan peace Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad recently shared with the Afghan leaders the draft U.S.-Taliban peace agreement.

Ambassador Khalilzad arrived to Kabul after concluding the 9th round of peace talks with the Taliban representatives in Doha.
