TODAY, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg held an online press conference, and special attention was drawn to the address of Lailuma Sadid, a journalist with Afghan roots who works for the Brussels newspaper Morning Newspaper.
“I would like to ask a question about NATO’s role in Afghanistan. NATO is not just America, don’t you think the decision you and NATO made is wrong?” said Sadid.
“How many more failed policies will follow before a solution is found? We have seen the situation. Because as a woman from Afghanistan … it is clear that the situation is very difficult. There are thousands of women in Afghanistan who do not know what the future holds, what it’s happening … Please don’t recognize the Taliban unconditionally, as Donald Trump did when he signed the deal with them, “the journalist said, battling tears.
“I’d like to ask how is that possible?”
As she asked the question, the newsroom behind her read “Afghan lives matter.”
“For 20 years NATO and the international community have been present in Afghanistan, and now we are going back 20 years. I would like to ask how this is possible? The European Union and the United States were at the top of civilization, they beat fascism and Nazism in World War II. now, despite their strength, they cannot fight the Taliban, ”the journalist said.
