NATO Parliamentary Assembly calls for greater involvement in Afghanistan

A RESOLUTION urging NATO member countries to step up their involvement in Afghanistan was approved by the permanent committee of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Bratislava, the news wire TASR wrote.

The biannual assembly is sitting for the first time in Slovakia, from May 28 to June 1, following the country's accession to the alliance on March 29.

Assembly President Doug Bereuter is expected to present the resolution to the body’s plenary session on June 1.

"Afghanistan is currently the main issue facing the alliance," said Jozef Banaš, head of the Slovak delegation to the assembly.

"It must be stated plainly that unless the [NATO] countries step up their presence in Afghanistan, they risk not achieving the political goals set for its development," he added.
