Denmark to send 55 more soldiers to Afghanistan

AVA- With the deployment, the number of Danish forces in Afghanistan will increase from 97 to 152.

The announcement by Denmark’s Defense Ministry comes over a week after its soldiers’ convoy was targeted in a car bombing in Kabul.

“If the Afghan government loses control, Afghanistan will once again become a haven for terrorist groups and we risk another wave of refugees to Europe and Denmark,” Denmark’s Foreign Minister Anders Samuelson said in a statement.

The incoming Danish soldiers will be stationed in Kabul at the beginning of 2018.
