Nato was not defeated in Afghanistan, says Ben Wallace

Nato not did suffer a military defeat in Afghanistan but there was a failure of political “resolve” by the Western alliance, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has said. Giving evidence to the Commons Defence Committee, Mr Wallace said Nato forces could have stayed on in the country but chose to leave. He blamed the “rotten deal” struck by the US administration of Donald Trump for the return in triumph of the Taliban last August as the Afghan army collapsed largely without a fight.
