    General David McKiernan, commander of the Nato led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, says his biggest problem is Taliban infiltration from across the border in Pakistan.

    According to Nato's military chief, they need a more sizable fighting force to defeat the Taliban.

    McKiernan took over the post two months ago, as a result he is the most senior US general in Afghanistan.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports on the exclusive interview.
