    KABUL - Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti made a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Sunday to see his country’s troops and hold talks with President Hamid Karzai. Monti visited the NATO-led Italian contingent at their base in Herat to mark Italian armed forces day before heading to Kabul to meet Karzai. “They are doing a really great job, transferring the responsibilty of the region to the authorities, national and local,” he told a joint news conference with the president. “We are very proud of our 3,500 men spending a part of their lives in the interest of global peace,” he said.
