    The Afghan government says that it is confident that it can assume control of the country's security by the end of 2014, when US forces are scheduled to depart.

    NATO handed over control of seven areas across the country last month, and is set to transfer over other areas in the coming days.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford spoke to Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, chief of Afghanistan's Transition Coordination Commission, in Kabul about the ongoing security hanover and its implications.
