The security responsibilities of three districts including the provincial capital of Kunar province was handed over from the NATO- led forces to Afghan security forces. The process of taking over security from NATO-led ISAF forces by Afghan troops would be completed by the end of 2014 when Afghanistan will take over the full leadership of its own security duties from U.S. and NATO forces.
