North talks up test credentials i카지노 사이트n Washington and Kabul as Obama calls it off
Settling on the “right people” for the job is “not difficult,” says President Barack Obama, the former Afghan president who turned 70 Thursday.

His emphasis, Obama said, was to take what he calls his “firstborn” — a peace process that has made progress in Afghanistan despite numerous violence-related incidents — and make sure it doesn’t go “over the top.”
