Target Date for Relief of Dutch Soldiers in Afghanistan Unrealistic

Maurits Jochems, until recently ambassador of NATO in Afghanistan, has said that the Afghan army will not be ready to replace the Dutch soldiers in the Uruzgan province by 2010. The Netherlands has already prolonged its mission by two years, till the end of 2010. Parliamentarian Hans van Baalen of the Liberal Party says that the Netherlands must emphasize that under no circumstances will it prolong its stay there any longer. www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/1572407/___Einddatum_missie_te_optimistisch___.html?cid=rss
