Dutch announce proposed new Afghanistan mission
The Hague: The Dutch
government says it is planning a new mission to Afghanistan to
train police in the insurgency-torn nation.
The government says in a letter to Parliament the
mission will involve 225 police trainers and 320 military
support staff who will be stationed in the capital Kabul and
the northern province of Kunduz.
The Dutch parliament, where Prime Minister Mark
Rutte`s coalition does not have a majority, must approve the
plan. No date was immediately set for a vote.
Today`s announcement says the force will also include
four Dutch F-16 jets already stationed in Afghanistan.
The decision comes less than a year after the previous
Dutch government collapsed over plans to extend a four-year
military mission in Afghanistan.
