Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, says bringing peace and security to Afghanistan and Iraq represents a major challenge, but one that the US is committed to achieving.

In a wide-ranging interview with Al Jazeera’s Abderrahim Foukara, Gates spoke about: the US strategy for peace in Afghanistan facing a “war of necessity”, the divide between two wars, fighting al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Iraq, Pakistan’s role in the region, the “threat” of a nuclear Iran, maintaining allies in the Middle East, and US ties with Latin America.
