NATO Secretary General’s Statement on Helicopter Tragedy in Afghanistan

BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–6 August 2011.  The statement below is attributed to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. 

I am deeply saddened by the death of US service members and Afghan soldiers in today’s helicopter incident. My thoughts and condolences are with their families and loved ones.

In this tragic moment I would like to stress NATO’s strong solidarity with the American and the Afghan people as well as with their respective Governments.

Brave and committed men and women from 48 countries are working along side their Afghan counterparts, to make Afghanistan a peaceful and stable country. We honour their sacrifices.

We are determined to stay the course, especially in this crucial period when Afghan and international security forces are working closer than ever to make transition a success
