Federal Government for an extension of the Afghanistan mission

The Bundeswehr is to remain on duty in Afghanistan until the end of January 2022, in order to participate in an ongoing NATO mission to aid the country. The Federal Cabinet concluded this after the withdrawal date of April 30th is no longer considered to be realistic, given the peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

The decision of the Federal Government requires the approval of the Bundestag. There are currently 1,300 German soldiers stationed in Afghanistan.
