Sweden may send more soldiers to Afghanistan
font size    

Sweden is considering sending more forces to the ISAF (International Security Force for Afghanistan) mission in Afghanistan, Radio Sweden reported on Tuesday.

The Swedish military wants to immediately increase the current force in northern Afghanistan from 250 to 275, and in the longer term it hopes to send a further 100 soldiers, the radio said.

Swedish Defense Minister Mikael Odenberg said he is considering the proposal, weighing the needs for an overall strategy for Swedish peacekeeping missions abroad, according to the public broadcaster.

The Swedes are serving in the NATO-led force of 31,000, as part of the Partner for Peace program.
