NATO Secretary General Welcomes Canadian Decision on Afghan Mission

BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–16 November 2010.  The following remarks are attributable to NATO Secretary General, Mr. Anders Fogh Rasmussen:

“I warmly welcome Prime Minister Harper’s announcement that Canada will deploy a substantial number of trainers to the NATO Training Mission in Afghanistan. Canada has contributed substantially, over many years, to the operation in Afghanistan. Canadian forces have made a real difference in the lives of the Afghan people, often at a high cost.

In just a few days, at the Lisbon Summit, we will launch the transition process, and early next year Afghan forces will steadily begin taking the lead for security throughout the country.  This Canadian contribution of hundreds of trainers will help the Afghan security forces to more quickly become capable of securing their own country against terrorism and extremism – a goal we all share.”
