The Taliban must live up to their commitments, significantly reduce the levels of violence, and pave the way for a ceasefire, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a pre-ministerial press conference in Brussels, Stoltenberg said all NATO members support the US-Taliban agreement and current Doha talks, but the Taliban must live up to its commitments.  

NATO’s stance is conditions-based and NATO is in Afghanistan to protect its own interests and to prevent the country from becoming a terrorist safe haven, he added.
