NATO Is Not Planning the Invasion of Afghanistan
Source: [PR/CP (2001) 125] Statement by the NATO Spokesman. NATO Headquarters, Brussels, Belgium. September 13, 2001.
An article published this morning in The Guardian reported that NATO was drawing up plans for a massive attack on Afghanistan. The story is wrong. It is based on unfounded speculations. I deny the contents of the article and wish to make it clear that NATO is not planning the invasion of Afghanistan, or of any other country, as suggested by the Guardian's article.
