US military mission in Afghanistan not ending soon: Gen. Dunford | Pajhwok Afghan News

During a joint Pentagon news briefing on Monday afternoon, US Secretary of Defence Ashton Carter said that the United States would continue to provide military support to Afghan security forces to make sure that they were successful.
“I don’t think anybody would suggest that our work is over in Afghanistan, nor will that work be complete anytime in the near future,” Gen Dunford said at the same news conference.
The US continued presence into 2017 and financial support by Nato nations, as approved at Warsaw (Nato summit earlier this month), would continue out to 2020, he added.
