NATO may boost its presence & prolong 'training' mission in Afghanistan – Stoltenberg

NATO is considering sending additional military personnel to Afghanistan and increasing the timeframe of the deployment in the view of the "challenging security situation," the alliance's secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, told the German Die Welt daily.

The additional troops are expected to join the NATO Resolute Support mission which it says is aimed at training, assisting and advising Afghan security forces in their fight against violent insurgents and various extremist groups.

The 'training' mission, after the majority of ‘combat’ troops were withdrawn, currently involves 13,000 servicemen, with around 8,400 of them being from the US.
The decision concerning further troops deployment is to be taken by June, Stoltenberg told Die Welt.

The military alliance is also expected to approve a new prolonged deployment procedure, he said. Instead of extending the mission every year, NATO would prolong it for a "longer term" to be able to develop long-term strategies.

NATO would like to take more initiative and responsibility in the fight against global terrorism, Stoltenberg said, noting however, that operations aimed at training local troops and security forces "are the best way to fight terrorism."

"We already do it to some extent, for example, in Afghanistan and Iraq but we have a potential to do even more," he said. "In such a way, we make them capable of stabilizing their land on their own. It is better than sending NATO troops that have then to defend those countries."

NATO's new strategy announcement comes as the situation in Afghanistan becomes increasingly tense.

US-led forces invaded Afghanistan to oust the Taliban from power more than 15 years ago, following the attacks of September 11, 2001. However, the extremist group, which advocates hardcore Islamist rule, is still active and continues to attack Afghan military targets and carry out terrorist attacks.

US Army General John Nicholson recently described the situation in Afghanistan as a "stalemate" as he briefed the US Senate Armed Services Committee.

BREAKING: Taliban suicide bomber kills 6 US soldiers in eastern Afghanistan

May 1, 2017

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:00 P.M.) – According to a statement released by the Taliban moments ago, a jihadist militant killed six US servicemen in a suicide bombing in Nangarhar province.

The bulletin claimed a Taliban suicide bomber blasted a US convoy in the embattled eastern province, setting alight a Humvee and burning alive all soldiers alive inside.

Washington is yet to address the claim.

Meanwhile, ISIS said it had imposed full control over the Chaparhar District in the very same governorate, expelling the Taliban from its former regional headquarters amid jihadist infighting.

With a three-way war raging across several provinces, an ISIS raid also killed 2 soldiers and injured a third earlier this week in the Nangarhar region, bordering Pakistan.
