In the framework of the Nato-led Resolute Support Mission are currently stationed about 1200 German soldiers in the Central Asian country. The decision on the extension of the Mandate now meets the German Bundestag. The Mission focused on training and advising Afghan security forces

The extension of the Mandate comes at a time when, in Afghanistan, there is growing concern that the U.S. could withdraw its troops, before a long-term peace with the Islamists. US President, Donald Trump wants around deduct one-half of the currently stationed in Afghanistan with 14,000 American soldiers. No time for that but plan.

Germany was prepared "at the request of the parties to the conflict to use its good offices to facilitate a peace process," it said in a disclosure to the Federal government to deputies of the Bundestag.
