Top U.S. Envoy praises Turkey’s role in Afghanistan

At a press meeting in Washington, Richard Holbrooke, U.S. Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan said, “Turkey is a very important factor in the region. I can think of no country in the ISAF alliance that has a role that is more important than Turkey’s, in terms of operations inside Afghanistan. We have the highest respect and attach the greatest importance to deepening our cooperation with Turkey”.

Afghanistan/Pakistan is an area of cooperation and common interests for Turkey and the U.S. Turkey’s role as part of NATO’s efforts in Afghanistan is respected and valued by the U.S., as reflected by Holbrooke’s comments.
