Kabul: All NATO nations in Afghanistan pull their international forces from the war this year and follow France`s lead, The Taliban urged on Sunday.

The call came in a three-page statement released as heads of state met at the NATO summit in Chicago to talk about the future of Afghanistan.

Newly elected French President Francois Hollande has said he will withdraw all French combat troops from Afghanistan by year`s end a full two years before the timeline agreed to by nations in US-led NATO coalition.

The insurgent group noted declining public support for the war in the West and said political leaders should listen to their constituents and get out of Afghanistan.
