The United States and NATO have reaffirmed their full support to Afghanistan in the war against terrorism and extremism, saying the U.S and NATO were determined to fight terrorism together with the Afghan government and the people.

U.S. Ambassador Hugo Llorens labeled terrorists a small contingent of people who only think about destruction and hatred.    

Meanwhile, general John Nicholson, the commander of NATO’s Resolute Support Mission (RS) in Afghanistan has paid tribute to the Afghan National Police (ANP) officers who defied the May 31 suicide bomber and sacrificed their lives to stop the truck from entering the Green Zone.    

He said these officers sacrificed their lives for the sake of their country and the people.

These remarks were made at a special gathering in Kabul attended by officials from the U.S embassy, German embassy, UK embassy and some top Afghan government officials where they honored the slain security force members killed in the massive truck bombing in the city.
