DOHA (Dispatches) – NATO officials are in talks with Qatar about providing a military base to allegedly help train Afghan army units after foreign forces withdraw from Afghanistan later this year, Reuters reports. “We are holding talks to earmark a base in Qatar to create an exclusive training ground for senior members of the Afghan forces,” said a senior Western security official in Kabul, according to Reuters. “We have made an offer, but it is for authorities in Qatar to decide if they are comfortable with NATO using their territory as a training ground,” another source based in Washington DC told the news agency.
