– BRUSSELS, AUGUST 17 – “Ending” the mission in Afghanistan “was not easy: the dilemma was to leave and see the Taliban regain control or remain in an endless war. We did not want to stay in Afghanistan forever”: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said so. “What we have seen in recent weeks has been an unpredictable military and political collapse. The Afghan political leadership has failed to find a political solution and this failure leads to the tragedy we are witnessing today,” he added. (HANDLE).
