NATO perplexed by Dutch Kunduz decision

13th October 2011, Comments 0 comments

NATO has expressed surprise at the Dutch decision to reduce the number of its police trainers in the Afghan province of Kunduz. The defence ministry says it took the decision because of a lack of recruits to train.

Speaking in Brussels today, US Lieutenant General William Caldwell, head of the NATO training mission in Afghanistan, said he would be astonished if there weren’t enough recruits in Kunduz since recently they have actually had to turn people away.
