    Indeed! But even more than that! The exit strategy shows that the Afghan government will have to step up even more! The Afghan people have a real identity as Afghans and the exit strategy shows them real respect that we are there to increase our help for them to take back the security of their country as well as we will remain loyal friends and partners later on for diplomatic, improved governance and development work on the civilians side because we are a world that is interconnected and we cannot let Afghanistan become again a land where terrorists will benefit from not seeing nation building in Afghanistan. We have the same commitment with Pakistan!
