NATO to focus on ending long war in Afghanistan


NATO says it will try to move beyond Donald Trump’s demands for higher defence spending and focus on ending the long war in Afghanistan.

It was stated by NATO leaders on the second day of a summit in Brussels.

The leaders will welcome on Wednesday the non-NATO partners including Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko to the alliance headquarters as they seek to focus on policy rather than politics.

Meanwhile, talking to reporters on the occasion, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that her country will send more troops for NATO’s Afghan training mission.
