KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) on Saturday said the Afghans were confident of the security provided by their own forces and were optimistic about a future of progress and opportunity.

In a statement, he said: "The professionalism and commitment of the Afghan forces was reflected in their applying lessons learned from the first round of elections.  Their tireless and effective efforts to bring peace and security to the Afghan people and to support political transition give me great optimism for the future."
