More UN, EU help needed in Afghanistan: NATO chief
Brussels: NATO`s new Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says the alliance needs more international help from the United Nations and European Union to secure and rebuild Afghanistan.
Fogh Rasmussen says "NATO will do its part, but cannot do
it alone" in Afghanistan. The ex-Danish Prime Minister took up
his post as the alliance`s top civilian official today.
Fogh Rasmussen says the alliance "must expand" its
coordination with other international organisations and aid
groups working in Afghanistan "to win the peace" there.
NATO has about 64,000 soldiers in Afghanistan -- half of
them Americans -- where they are struggling to contain a
rising Taliban insurgency.
