BRUSSELS, June 14 (Reuters) - NATO has not decided during a leaders' summit on Monday on who would run the Kabul international airport after the U.S.-led withdrawal of allied troops from Afghanistan, NATO's chief said.

NATO committed to provide transitional funding for the Hamid Karzai airport and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Turkey would play a key role there. (Reporting by Robin Emmott, Gabriela Baczynska)
