Broad Support for Afghan Mission

Swedish soliders in Afghanistan told a minute of silence for the Afghan interpreter who was killed in a recent attack

The Swedish parliament votes Thursday on the continuation of the Swedish contingent in the Isaf force in Afghanistan.

During parliament’s debate on the issue Wednesday, every party except the opposition Left party spoke in favor of the government’s proposal to remain in Isaf with an armed force of at most 855. The Left party criticised how much success Isaf has achieved during its 8 years.

That position was not shared by the other opposition parties. But both the Social Democrats and the Greens have a introduced motion calling for a review of the Swedish participation in Afghanistan in 2011.

Conservative Moderate Defence Ministry Sven Tolgfors told parliament it would be totally irresponsible towards the civilians of Afghanistan to and a betrayal of international solidarity to abandon the mission.
