NATO chief warns of high price if troops leave Afghanistan

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday said that the military organisation could pay a heavy price for leaving Afghanistan too early, after US President Donald Trump's administration's plan to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan, Tolo News reported."Afghanistan risks becoming once again a platform for international terrorists to plan and organize attacks on our homelands. And ISIS (Daesh) could rebuild in Afghanistan the terror caliphate it lost in Syria and Iraq," Stoltenberg said in a statement. "NATO Allies support the peace process in Afghanistan. As part of this process, we have already significantly adjusted our presence," he added. Stoltenberg said that he has repeatedly stressed that they will continue to review their troop levels in Afghanistan.The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday said that the military organisation could pay a heavy price for leaving Afghanistan too early, after US President Donald Trump's administration's plan to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan, Tolo News reported.Afghanistan risks becoming once again a platform for international terrorists to plan and organize attacks on our homelands.
