Nato declares no winter let-up against Afghan Taliban
Nato forces will fight through the bitter Afghan winter to step up the pressure on the Taliban, concentrating on their strongholds in the south and east, a spokesman for the alliance said yesterday.
"The Taliban will be under pressure over the next three months' winter time," Brigadier General Josef Blotz told a news conference in Kabul.
"We're making progress and now it is about holding on this progress," he said. "This progress is not irreversible yet."
Nato-led forces are battling Taliban militants in their strongholds in the southern provinces of Kandahar and Helmand.
