KABUL - A senior NATO civilian official on Monday said the death of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan wouldn't have any impact on security transition process at all.
At a joint press conference with NATO Spokeswoman Gen. Christine Whitecross, Deputy C ivilian Spokesperson for NATO Chris Chambers said the transition process is unchangeable and will continue unaffected until the end of 2014.
"That process has been ongoing since then and before the death of Osama Bin Laden. That process continues today to transfer security responsibility to the Afghan government and that process has not changed, the timeline has not changed and it will continue unabated with or without the death of Osama Bin Laden. So there is absolutely no impact on transition at all," Deputy Civilian Spokesman for NATO Chris Chambers told reporters.
Mr Chambers said NATO will continue to provide enduring cooperation to Afghanistan and Pakistan in a bid to bring security and stability to both nations.
Speaking at the conference NATO Spokeswoman Brig. Gen. Christine Whitecross said ISAF and NATO nations will continue to help Afghanistan to build its capacities and army capabilities.
"NATO and ISAF nations have committed to maintaining a longstanding and enduring partnership with Afghanistan and Afghan people. We will continue to support capacity and capability development of the Afghan national security forces and transition through 2014," Brig. Gen. Whitecross said.
The death of Osama Bin Laden, the biggest achievement of President Obama in the fight against terrorism since taking office, as experts said wouldn't significantly affect the Taliban-led violence in Afghanistan. (Tolo News)
