NATO officials to pledge forces for Afghan war
Brussels: NATO says military representatives of its 28 member nations are meeting to pledge additional troops to serve alongside the 30,000 reinforcements committed to Afghanistan by President Barack Obama.
The conference at the alliance`s military headquarters in Mons, Belgium, is expected to confirm pledges made last week by allied nations for an additional 7,000 allied troops.
NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he expects member states to commit several thousand more by the time of an international conference in London in January.
Monday`s meeting is part of an annual effort during which members commit forces for all the alliance`s military missions.
