Written by Gisele Alba

NATO has received a request from military chiefs for more troops to be sent to Afghanistan, according to Jens Stoltenberg, the alliance’s secretary-general.

Speaking after meeting British Prime Minister Theresa May in the UK capital, London, on Wednesday, Stoltenberg insisted this would not mean a return to combat operations.

We have received a request from our military authorities to increase our military presence in Afghanistan with a few thousand troops,” he said. “It will continue to be a train, assist and advise operation,” Stoltenberg added.
