The New Zealand government was not ruling out sending more troops to Afghanistan amid concerns about the insurgency of the Taliban in that country, Newstalk ZB,a Wellington-based radio channel reported on Tuesday.

Defense Minister Phil Goff said the government will respond as necessary to provide security for New Zealand forces.

There are no plans to boost troop numbers, though any trends are being watched which may require attention, Goff added.

New Zealand has 107 troops in Afghanistan, most of them are part of the provincial reconstruction team based in Bamyan.

New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark recently announced that the New Zealand military deployment would last until at least September 2009.
