HERAT (AFGHANISTAN) (ITALPRESS) – The mission in Afghanistan “highlighted the high professionalism of our men and women in uniform but above all their strong ability to grasp the needs of the Afghan people and their institutions”. This was stated by the Minister of Defense, Lorenzo Guerini, in Herat, on the occasion of the flag lowering ceremony for the conclusion of the Italian military presence in the framework of the NATO Resolute Support mission. “Afghanistan must not go back to being a safe haven for international terrorism – explained Guerini -: we must continue to strengthen the country also with a view to training the Afghan security forces, so as not to waste the results achieved in the last 20 years”. “Today we are here to close our participation in the Resolute Support Operation, which has replaced Isaf since January 2015, concentrating our efforts on training, consulting and accompanying our Afghan allies and friends. An activity of the highest level – he continued. the minister – who in recent years has seen the direct or indirect training of more than 20,000 Afghan soldiers of the 207th Army Corps of the Afghan National Army with whom we have successfully worked in recent years. But also the realization of about 2200 projects of civil and military cooperation “. “In over twenty years – said Guerini – more than 50,000 soldiers from all the Armed Forces have alternated in this country with land, air and special forces assets. I also want to address my heartfelt thoughts to all Italians, civilians and soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan. I remember among them the 53 who died and the more than 700 wounded among our soldiers and those who, even today, bear the signs of courageous testimony of life in the service of the country.
