US President Barack Obama saluted Sunday the "milestone" end of NATO's combat mission in Afghanistan, but warned the country remains "a dangerous place."
"For more than 13 years, ever since nearly 3,000 innocent lives were taken from us on 9/11, our nation has been at war in Afghanistan," the president said in a statement.
"Now, thanks to the extraordinary sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, our combat mission in Afghanistan is ending, and the longest war in American history is coming to a responsible conclusion."
