Afghan pullout is 'biggest NATO debacle': Merkel party chief
The withdrawal of Western troops from Afghanistan is the "biggest debacle" that NATO has suffered since its founding, the head of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's party, Armin Laschet, said on Monday (August 16). Laschet said focus at the moment must be on the German military's evacuation operation from Afghanistan."But we will talk about the causes and conclusions drawn after this rescue mission -- a no holds barred analysis of errors in Germany, with our allies and in the international community," he said. FRANCE 24's Emmanuelle Chaze tells us more.
