Love and Peace| NATO announced today that it has finalized an agreement with Kazakhstan on the transit of supplies to Afghanistan, a move that should reduce reliance on a route through Pakistan under attack by the Taliban.
“This allows supplies for our forces to start moving from Europe to Afghanistan, beginning in the coming days, complementing the very important transit route through Pakistan,” NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said. via Reuters
Rasmussen welcomed German’s announcements of 850 more soldiers to Afghanistan and Romania’s announcement of 600 more soldiers. More announcements should come after tomorrow’s (Thursday’s) international conference on Afghanistan. Read on: London Convenes Around Afghanistan.
