Almaty. November 24. KazTAG - The Parliament of Afghanistan has asked NATO to help in war with Taliban, reports the RBK portal.
"With the majority of votes the Parliament of Afghanistan adopted a resolution which calls the US and NATO to deploy up to 12 000 soldiers to support the local army. This way Kabul hopes to resist advance of Taliban troops," reads the message.
The agreement on involvement of the Western states in the operation against Taliban had been signed by Ashraf Ghani, President of Afghanistan, in September, however, it did not come into force as it was not approved by the Parliament.
