Officials in ministry of defense emphasized that they have special programs in all sectors especially in intelligence, aviation and engineering that the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces can independently defend the country.
Afghan security forces, especially ANA have the greatest security responsibility in the country.
NATO’s new mission for supporting ANA has recently begun which includes equipping, training and counselling to Afghan security forces.
