  • NATO Summit September 4-5 in Wales

    On September 4 and 5 in Wales, President Obama will gather with the other Allied leaders to advance the vision of a strengthened, sharpened, and adaptable North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), resourced and prepared to deter and defend against traditional and emerging security threats today and into the future. The NATO Summit will spotlight a top priority of the United States: a transatlantic partnership which is vibrant, strongly unified, and taking on the toughest challenges. NATO’s primary objective in Afghanistan is to enable the Afghan authorities to provide effective security across the country and ensure that the country can never again be a safe haven for terrorists. As transition progresses and Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) take on their security responsibilities, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) will complete its shift from a combat to a supporting role, and continue to train, advise and assist the ANSF until transition completion at the end of 2014. ISAF will continue to provide combat support, as necessary, until the end of 2014.  NATO Summit - Wales »
