ICYMI: NATO announces plans to withdraw from Afghanistan

Article by Charity Wallace February 28, 2014 //   1 minute read

Today, NATO announced their plans to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of December 2014 unless the Status of Forces agreement is completed and the Bilateral Security Agreement is signed by the Afghan government.   US and NATO forces have worked to not only stabilize security in Afghanistan, but the countries and citizens represented by NATO are working to improve the lives of every Afghan citizen, particularly women.  As the Afghan Women’s Project has highlighted, women have made great strides in Afghanistan but their progress is fragile and with the withdrawal of stabilizing forces, their future is at risk.  We encourage Americans and the international community to sustain their commitments and support to Afghanistan so we can see Afghans reach the better future they are working toward.
