27.3.2021 German troops’ stay in Afghanistan extended
Просмотреть
The German cabinet has agreed to extend Afghanistan mission into 2022
pending an approval by the parliament.
German troops are likely to stay on in Afghanistan as the government on
Wednesday agreed to extend its military mandate in the country by 10
months, reported the DW. The new draft mandate still needs the approval of
the Bundestag, the lower house of parliament.
The current mandate is set to expire at the end of March.
Under the draft agreed by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Cabinet, German
troops would be able to stay in the war-ravaged country until January 31,
2022.
The German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert said the new date
“takes account appropriately of the complex situation in Afghanistan and
also makes possible the flexibility necessary to be able to react if the
volatile security and threat situation there changes.”
With over 1,100 troops, Germany has the second-largest contingent after
the United States in NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan.
Seibert said that the maximum limit of 1,300 German troops will remain
unchanged in the new mandate.
The decision comes a week after NATO said it had made “no final decision”
on the future of the mission. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg
acknowledged that the military alliance is facing “many dilemmas” over its
continued engagement in the country.
US President Joe Biden is reviewing Donald Trump’s 2020 deal with the
Taliban, which sets May 1 as the deadline for a final US troop pullback.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the decision to withdraw troops
should not be rushed, rather than being “slavishly” bound to the May
deadline. Instead, the drawback of troops should be linked to slow-paced
peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban, he has said
