NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said the future of the alliance’s 15-year presence in Afghanistan will depend on the outcome of peace talks involving Taliban militants.

Talking to the media conference at NATO headquarters in Brussels, he said   NATO strongly supports the peace efforts and we welcome the talks that are taking place between the United States and Taliban.

He said we actually have a chapter on projecting stability and how we are working, for instance, in Afghanistan to help to stabilize the country and to fight terrorism.

He said that the troop levels also depend on the outcome of the negotiations.
