UN Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has revealed the main pillars of NATO’s future support to Afghanistan, said Stoltenberg at the joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, APA reports.

"As we end our military presence, we are opening a new chapter. NATO’s future support will have three main pillars. First, we plan to provide advice and capacity support to Afghan security institutions, as well as continued financial support to the Afghan security forces. Second, we are planning to provide military education and training outside Afghanistan, focusing on Special Operations Forces.  And third, we are planning to fund the provision of services, including support for the functioning of Kabul airport. All this will enable NATO Allies and the broader international community to continue to help the Afghan people and contribute to the peace efforts,” stressed UN Secretary-General.
