Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen says there could be another Dutch mission to the Afghan province of Uruzgan after the current one ends in 2010

THE HAGUE - The minister made the remark during an interview with the Sunday edition of De Telegraaf.

The statement is in contradiction to comments made by Defence Minister Eimert van Middelkoop, who had ruled out any further role for the 1,600 Dutch soldiers currently deployed in Afghanistan.
