BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:13 A.M.) – Two top Western military leaders have arrived unannounced in Afghanistan as part of a renewed interest by the United States and Europe in solving the war-torn country’s ongoing terrorism issue.
Minutes ago, reports came in from Afghan media sources that two top military chiefs, one from the United States and the other from NATO, had arrived in Kabul.
General Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of NATO, and former Marine Corps General James Mattis, the current US Defense Secretary, have reportedly arrived in Afghanistan to discuss strategy with Afghan military officials.
The talks are believed to not only encompass Afghan-related strategy to defeat Islamist and jihadist groups but also military and political solutions to combat terrorism throughout the entire South Asia region with particular focus on Pakistan.
