Context

A report presented at NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly spring session in Bulgaria on Sunday indicated a slow progress being made in Afghanistan. In a Draft General Report, entitled “Transition in Afghanistan: Assessing the Security Effort,” Sven Mikser, the rapporteur, said that up to now, overall progress in efforts to improve the security situation in the country has been slow. According to him, although localized tactical achievements have been made in improving security, so far these haven’t delivered strategic results. There still remain widespread and significant challenges to both governance and security in many fields, Mikser added.
