German Engagement in Afghanistan

Wednesday May 17th, 2017

Germany’s engagement in Afghanistan post -9/11 is a milestone in German foreign policy, and is a strong and reliable partner in the international efforts to help build an Afghanistan.

The German participation in the International Security Assistance Force mission in Afghanistan is fully in line with the priorities for the way ahead in Afghanistan as identified by NATO and the broader international community: to train the Afghan security forces; to protect the Afghan population; to generate employment opportunities; and to help the Afghan Government to provide education, basic services, and infrastructure.
