THE EVOLUTION OF THE AFGHAN NATIONAL ARMY FROM 2001 TO THE PRESENT

  • Traian MAGHERCA 30th Guard Brigade „Mihai Viteazul”

Abstract

The conflict begun in Afghanistan in October 2001 has not ended, and the current context of negotiating a peace agreement between the United States and the Taliban group does not guarantee the cessation of hostilities in this hot-zone of the world. This aspect coupled with the statements of the U.S. President regarding the withdrawal of the US Armed Forces from Afghanistan entitles us to state that a vital role in the evolution of the security environment in the Afghan space is played by the security institutions of this state, in particular the army and the police. The army, in fact the entire state apparatus, is going through a long process of reformation. The process of transformation of this institution has been very difficult, and the challenges and obstacles that have arisen over time have determined the slowing down of the optimistic pace triggered by the plans of reform and development of the Afghan national army.
