Photo exhibition illustrates Turkey’s engagement in Afghanistan
Turkey’s ongoing efforts in Afghanistan are at the centre of a photo exhibition held at NATO Headquarters from 10 to 16 June in Brussels.
Turkey, which enjoys special historical and cultural ties with Afghanistan, has launched a comprehensive assistance program, with the aim of improving Afghan ownership and ensuring sustainable peace and development in the country.
Turkey’s support to Afghanistan is coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency. The Turkish Armed Forces provide substantial contributions to the capacity building efforts in the security realm both through bilateral channels and also through NATO/ISAF, which has twice been under Turkish command.
