There are signs of improvement in Afghanistan, but NATO will not pull its troops out of the country anytime soon, the organization's leader said Friday. However, he denied NATO is looking to become an international police group. NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said that while the situation remains complex in Afghanistan, improvements are being made. "I assure you that reconstruction and development is going on," de Hoop Scheffer said at a news conference. "Let's not see the picture totally blur by the Taliban making roadside bombs." He added, however, that a withdrawal from Afghanistan in the near future was out of the question.
