Poland will not reduce its current Afghanistan force but Polish troops will leave Iraq in 2008, new Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich said Monday.

Klich also supported Poland's involvement in training Afghan police under the EU's civilian mission in Afghanistan, according to Polish PAP news agency.

He said that Poland was ready to send 350 troops to Chad under the EU's peace mission in the country provided it received logistic aid.

The logistics for Polish Chad troops would come from France, which heads the mission, or the EU's Athena military fund, added the defense minister.

Klich assured Poland would withdraw from Iraq in 2008, but declined to say whether this would be in the first or second half of the year.

Poland currently has about 900 troops stationed in Iraq.
