While seeking greater control of billions in development funds, Afghanistan has promised in return to take on more responsibility for security. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says he's confident the Afghans will be able to live up to their responsibility, but he's reassured Afghan people they won't allow a situation where the government could be overthrown by extremists.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said, "We will handover responsibility for the security to the Afghans when, but only when, the Afghans are really capable to take responsibility themselves. We will not leave the Afghan people behind. We will never accept that the Afghan government will be overthrown by extremists. We will never accept the Taliban once again will get a safe haven in Afghanistan."
