NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg says NATO will boost its training mission in Afghanistan by three thousand troops.

The announcement comes as Kabul reeling from the latest deadly attack on civilians.

Speaking a day before nato Defence Ministers meet in brussels, he said, round half the new troops will come from the United States, and the overall size of nato’s training and support mission in the violence-hit country will increase from thirteen thousand to sixteen thousand.

Stoltenberg said the alliance would boost its presence to help the afghans break the stalemate, to send a clear message to taliban to the insurgents that they will not win on the battleground.

But Stoltenberg insisted there would be no return to combat operations
