In full partnership with the Afghan government, Resolute Support seeks reconciliation and peace for Afghanistan.
NATO's mission in Afghanistan, Resolute Support, is of strategic importance and fully incorporates a resolute partnership with the Afghan government. Resolute Support military and civilian personnel, in conjunction with their Afghan counterparts, conduct daily training, advising, and assisting in elements critical to a fully-functioning government. This includes developing Afghan leadership, advising on Afghan reforms for fighting corruption, and most importantly, optimizing Afghan National Defense and Security Forces capabilities and resources to defend and protect Afghanistan from its enemies.
Resolute Support focuses on eight key areas, called "Essential Functions,” or EFs. These eight areas provide the framework and guidelines that enable Afghanistan and its security forces to sustain their efforts and help guide Afghanistan to a brighter future.
