Acting Finance Minister Confirms NATO’s Reassurances for Afghanistan

Acting Finance Minister Mohammad Humayun Qayumi has confirmed that the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and the alliance’s partners have commended reforms in the Afghan government’s civilian and military institutions.

NATO has also reassured their commitment to the financial sustainment of the Afghan security forces.

The commitment was made during NATO Defense Ministers’ meeting in Brussels last year in November and it was reaffirmed in Qayumi’s trip to Brussels on June 4 where he attended the plenary meeting of the Afghan National Army Trust Fund Board at NATO Headquarters.

“NATO sees its relationship with Afghanistan in the medium-term and long-term and, of course, will play a key role in bringing stability to Afghanistan,” Qayumi told reporters at a press conference on Sunday and added that “NATO and partners commended all civilian and military reforms, government savings and the progress made in Afghanistan,”.
