By: The Kabul Times

KABUL: The meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) chaired by the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Mohammad Ashraf Ghani was held yesterday morning at the presidential palace, a statement said.
In the meeting, the general security and military situation and political issues of the country were discussed, the presidential palace said in a statement.
This comes as the heads of Afghanistan’s security agencies on Saturday referring to the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country reassured that the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) were capable of foiling threats posed by the insurgents and terror groups as they have proved it in the past.
General Yasin Zia, the Afghan Acting Minister of Defense, said that currently foreign forces are only in Bagram and Balkh and that recently six new A-29 Super Tucano aircraft have been handed over to the Afghan Air Force.
“You shouldn’t be influenced by the propagandas of the ISI (Pakistan’s intelligence agency). These complex operations which are designed by foreign nations are handled by these brave men (ANDSF),” Zia said.
National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib also said that foreign forces will handover military equipment worth of $1 billion to ANDSF when they leave the country.
