KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): NATOinfo-icon allies and partners have underscored the importance to continue backing the Afghan forces through training, advising and assistance as part of the Resolute Support mission.

At their meeting in Brussels on Friday, the alliance and its partners noted the continued progress made by the Afghan security forces and institutions since assumption of full security responsibility.

President Ashraf Ghani, Resolute Support Commander Gen. John Nicholson and the NATO Senior Civilian Representative to Afghanistaninfo-icon Cornelius Zimmermann attended via video conference.

The meeting marked the completion of a process of periodic review of Resolute Support, renewing the commitment undertaken at the NATO Summit in Warsaw last year to sustain the mission as a conditions-based effort.

They also affirmed their support to the ongoing force generation process to ensure that the mission was properly resourced, the alliance said in a statement.

The participants took stock of efforts by the Afghan government to boost internal reforms and maintain momentum on stability, good governance, rule of law, regional cooperation and the Afghan-led peace process.
