As of today,every single child born and raised in Afghanistan has experienced war and conflict in their country, Save the Children said in statement today. October 7th marks 18 years since the start of the conflict between the coalition forces and the Taliban.
The State Department spokesperson, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the IMET cancellations were valued at $2.41 million so far. At least two other programmes have also been affected, the spokesperson said. It is unclear precisely what level of military cooperation still continues outside the IMET programme, beyond the top-level contacts between US and Pakistani military leaders.
