You're reading: Russia’s Putin says NATO should stay in Afghanistan

ULYANOVSK, Russia - NATO forces should stay in Afghanistan until their job is done, Russia President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday, suggesting they should stay beyond a planned withdrawal of most combat troops in 2014.

“It is regrettable that many participants in this operation
are thinking about how to pull out of there,” Putin said at a
meeting with paratroopers in the Russian city of Ulyanovsk.
“They took up this burden and should carry it to the end.”
