Afghanistan still a ‘dangerous’ country: US

Kabul : The Obama administration, despite seven years of sustained efforts and spending billions of dollars with hundreds of its soldiers dead, still finds Afghanistan to be a dangerous country.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that it is a difficult situation in Afghanistan at the moment, TOLONews reported.

He observed that the Afghans should learn lessons from the losses that they have sustained as the Afghan National Security Forces have been in charge of the security situation in the country for only about a year or so.

Earnest said that the US military and NATO partners have made substantial contributions in offering assistance and expertise to those security forces.

He added that US would continue to have intensive conversations with its NATO partners about how they can contribute to the ongoing efforts in Afghanistan. (ANI)
