"I came to Zabul to hear from the people of Zabul about peace and what they expect from the peace process and I’ve heard here in Zabul that people are thirsty for peace and that peace is their biggest priority." NATO SCR added.
He praised  and congratulate the governor and the security leaders  for improvement of  the security in Zabul province.
Kay added , without security, there won’t be any peace and it is important that the Taliban know that the Afghan forces are strong,
Hasna Jalil said that they assessed the condition of its security institutions in the province and would further empower their troops until spring.
She the cooperation of Afghan and foreign forces continued and pledged to thwart every sort of attack from the enemy side. (Pajhwok)
