Biden warns of 'deteriorating' Afghan situation

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden says the "deteriorating situation" in Afghanistan poses a security threat to every NATO country and beyond.
Biden says Washington wants to work more closely with its European allies to remove the threat al-Qaida and the Taliban pose in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
He addressed NATO's top decision making body, a panel of the alliance's 26 national ambassadors, on how to improve its security efforts in Afghanistan.
Biden warned Tuesday that "extremist allies are regenerating" in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and planning possible new attacks on the West.
