Topic: Afghan candidates' unity pledge eases NATO's worries

By Phil Stewart and Sanjeev Miglani NEWPORT Wales/KABUL (Reuters) - Afghanistan's rival presidential candidates pledged to NATO leaders on Thursday that they would form a government of national unity and sign legal agreements allowing foreign troops to stay on next year. The message to a NATO summit from Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah was meant to reassure allies concerned that a lengthy deadlock over the disputed presidential election could force NATO to pull all its troops out of Afghanistan this year.
