Afghan MoD: NATO decision 'neither helps or worries us'

General Mohammad Zahir Azmi, spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defence has told ITV News that NATO's announcement over scaling back on links with Afghan forces is not "something that helps us but nor is it something that worries us".

Mr Azmi said that the Afghan Army conducts their own independent operations without NATO, adding that some of the training and classwork on the ground will continue.

He also said that if their forces needed the partnership, that they can still get permission from regional commanders.
