COMISAF visits Faryab Province

KABUL, Afghanistan – General Dan K. McNeill, ISAF commander, attended the ceremony of signing a mutual document between General Ali Murat, 209th ANA Corps commanding general, and General Dieter Warnecke, ISAF Regional Command North commander, in Faryab Province Oct. 29.

The signing of the document signifies the declaration of both sides to jointly provide security in the region. The Afghan government has decided to reinforce the Afghan National Security Forces presence in the northwest and ISAF strongly supports these efforts to stabilize the region.

“General McNeill’s visit was intended to gain an impression of the ongoing process of enhancing security in the northwest of Afghanistan. He was impressed that the reinforced presence of Afghan National Security Forces has almost immediately shown positive effects,” said Warnecke.
