Stoltenberg: NATO will extend the mandate of the mission in Afghanistan after 2016, too

38
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the one whom Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov asked today not to go to the microphone, declared his readiness to extend the mandate of the NATO mission in Afghanistan. At the same time, it becomes clear from the words of Stoltenberg that he decided not to consult with Kabul, but was ready to extend the mission unilaterally. Solving problems at the side of a side street is a common practice of the North Atlantic military bloc.


Stoltenberg: NATO will extend the mandate of the mission in Afghanistan after 2016, too


Interfax cites a statement by the NATO Secretary General, expressed during a press conference at the headquarters of the North Atlantic Alliance:
The ministers of (NATO's foreign affairs) agreed to continue the “Strong support” mission after 2016.


Recall that in the United States and NATO have repeatedly declared their readiness to turn down the mission in Afghanistan (in particular, Obama promised to remove the troops from Iraq and Afghanistan as a candidate for the presidency of the United States), but each time Washington and Brussels found reasons to extend the missions. This is happening now, when the end of the mandate of the NATO mission in Afghanistan remains just over six months.

Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO will continue to "assist the democratic forces of Afghanistan to counter terrorism." At the same time, he did not clarify who today in Afghanistan should be considered terrorist, and whom by democratic forces ... For example, where would NATO write the Taliban, which was once created to fight against Soviet soldiers in Afghan territory?

          Since the beginning of the US military operation “Enduring Freedom” in the fight against terrorism, the drug business has flourished here. Drugs are produced in Afghanistan not only for domestic consumption - they are distributed all over the world and have already claimed at least a million lives. Under NATO, heroin production in Afghanistan increased by 2013 times by 40, and by 2015 times by 60. Sales are also largely carried out through NATO structures; profit goes to war and the enrichment of the “chosen ones”. There is supposedly evidence that members of the royal family of Great Britain even participate in the drug business in Afghanistan.

      The decisive support of poppy plantations and drug trafficking by military aircraft of NATO countries is undoubtedly worthy of respect.

        Well, in principle, this is so. And what to do with the CIA and NATO? The Americans were kicked out of the "Golden Triangle", and the potion must be produced somewhere. So Afghanistan was chosen. This is a link to the "Golden Triangle". Http: // putevodnayazvezda .com / traveling / zolotoj-treugol-nik-tai

      The issue is not in hospitals ......
      Mattresses for 2017 have budgeted $ 70 million to fight terrorism in Tajikistan.
      So look at the map, where it is more convenient to export terrorism to Tajikistan.
      Earlier there was information that against the background of the fight against the Taliban and the destruction of their leader, "some forces" rescued the ISIS by taking them to the North of Afghanistan by helicopters. And who has such opportunities?

        Drugs in Afghanistan have always been, by the way, in the photo of the Indian cannabis field. Read the book by Yuri Slatov "My War." At the beginning of the book, he describes how he was warned about the methods of drawing our soldiers into drug addiction. fight against poppy and hemp crops, and did not expand their production, like the Americans.

    American Nonsense. All that they say is a lie, ... and provocation.
    In addition, the preservation of US troops in Afghanistan by the quantitative composition of 9800 people next year is planned, instead of the planned 5500 people.
    So they brought the people. And how truthfully everyone promised! http://tehnowar.ru/42764-yanki-na-izmene-ssha-sokratili-v-dva-raza-voennuyu-pomo

      NATO members, if they leave, they will not return back - they are unlikely to receive a mandate from the UN. And if they do, then it will not be easy to enter. Therefore, they are afraid that they will lose influence in the region. But it is important because of India, China, Iran and the influence of Russia - how could it be without them !?
      You are mistaken about the Chuy valley. She was never a "source". During the Second World War, a rope factory was located there. And they were made from the hemp that was planted there. So it spread there. The only advantage is that it grows there by itself (wild) and does not need to be looked after. And this "product" in quality will be better than to the south (sun and watering). Therefore, quality cannot be compared with Afghan, Pakistan and India. Even in the south of the United States, it will be of better quality than in the Chui Valley. hi

        Do they pay much attention to what the decrepit, obsolete UN will say? And who of those entrenched there would dare to speak out against the owner? All this talk about the mandate reminds of I.A. Krylova - "... but to give the case a legal look and sense." If the UN does not renew its mandate, will NATO withdraw its troops from Afghanistan? I think no. They will only do what is beneficial to them and do not care about the world community, about which they so zealously "care".

    Between 2001 and today, the United States spent approximately $ 715 billion in funding for military operations in Afghanistan, including $ 35 billion spent from the beginning of this year. (National Priorities Project)
