ISAF troops may return to Europe through Azerbaijan - 8.2.2013

NATO is discussing with Azerbaijan on the use of Azeri territory during troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, Officer-Coordinator for the South Caucasus William Lahu said.

He made this statement at the winter session of the NATO International School in Azerbaijan dedicated to Challenges to Security in the Caspian Region.

William Lahu said Azerbaijan and NATO were discussing the troop pullout from Afghanistan, including the Azeri contingent after 2014, with the plan of actions after 2014, the year that should end the ISAF mission.

The NATO officer-coordinator pointed out that Azerbaijans location was vital for the pullout process since it was a potential country for redislocation of the withdrawn NATO troops. In view of this, Azerbaijan could be an important link in the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan to Europe, he said.
