NATO Chief: Fight against terrorism is global.
BRUSSELS, Sept 11 (KUNA) -- NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg joined US Permanent Representative to the Alliance Kay Bailey Hutchison at the 9/11 Memorial at NATO Headquarters Wednesday for a ceremony commemorating the 18th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. Stoltenberg recalled that the attack led to the invocation of the Alliance's collective defence clause 5 of NATO for the first and only time in history, and that Allies stand united in the "global, generational fight" against terrorism. "The fight against terrorism is a global, generational fight. We remain committed to Afghanistan. NATO Allies and partners will continue to train and advise Afghan security forces. To make them stronger, so that they can fight international terrorism and create security and stability in their own country", he said. "NATO also fights terrorism beyond Afghanistan. In Iraq, we train the armed forces to ensure that they can prevent Da'esh from coming back. And we work with partners across the Middle East and North Africa," Stoltenberg added. (end) nk.mb
