Gem til liste

The government parties, the Liberals, COservatives, Danish People’s Party and Liberal Alliance have agreed on a two-year plan for Denmark’s involvement in Afghanistan.

These are the main points of the plan:

  • Danish battle units are to be out of Afghanistan before the end of 2014.
  • After 2014 Denmark’s military involvement in Afghanistan will be confined to advisers and instructors.
  • The Danish infantry will come home in February 2014 at the latest while the tank unit will return in mid-2014.
  • From January 1, 2014 Danish military presence will be reduced from the current 650 to 250 and will be reduced further.
  • The agreement opens the possibility of sending a number of F-16s to Afghanistan. Such a deployment, however, will require parliamentary approval.
  • The deployment of a transport helicopter to Afghanistan from the summer of 2014 is also under consideration. A decision will be taken in 2013.
  • When Danish battle units are withdrawn, there will be greater focus on civilian efforts.
  • Over the next two years, Denmark will contribute to the build-up of the Afghan police force. This effort will be gradually reduced.
  • From 2013 to 2017 Denmark will provide over DKK 2 billion in aid to Afghanistan. The aid will be earmarked for development, good governance, economic growth and the development of the security forces.
