He also added that its the primary task for United States and other Coalition Forces' to equip afgan security forces as they're now taking care of maximum security issues but being failed mostly.

From lessons of Pakistan's Operation Zerb-e-Azbs' successes afgan authorities gained knowledge that attack helicopters are more effective in the fight against insurgents.

Hence Kabul urging Moscow for long range, effective weapons platforms.
