NATO: Former political and military leadership to blame for Afghanistan collapse

NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s responsibilities to Afghanistan’s political and military leadership, backed by NATO providing training and billions of euros over the past 20 years

According to the NATO Secretary-General, the Taliban should respect and facilitate the safe departure of all those wishing to leave Kabul airport, as well as the land border, and have a peaceful transfer of power to a government that will not seek revenge and exclusions.

Mr. Stoltenberg stressed that the collapse was so rapid and therefore there are many lessons to be learned. However, according to Stoltenberg himself, there have been successes during NATO’s 20-year presence in the Asian country, there has not been a single terrorist attack on an allied country organized in Afghanistan.

The NATO Secretary-General also referred to the states that ensure that the Kabul airport is left open for the removal of personnel and equipment from the country, with special reference to the United States of America, Turkey, and Norway.
