    A french pull out of nearly 200 troops from Afghanistan is part of the pull out programed at NATO levels.
    It sign the phase where Afghan army will assume the control of the country situation, not without a support of NATO forces.
    We hope that this transition phase may be a phase that mark a new era for Afghanistan.
    A welcome home to french troops.
