Germany: Chancellor Merkel on visit to Afghanistan

Published: 05.10.13, 11:08 / Israel News

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel made a surprise visit Friday to northern Afghanistan to visit her troops less than two weeks after insurgents killed a German special forces soldier and wounded a second, a military spokesman said.


Germany is the only NATO nation that is committed to leaving troops in Afghanistan after the coalition completes its scheduled pullout of combat forces next year. The US is likely to deploy several thousand troops if the Afghan government provides them legal protection. (AP)
