Agreement on Afghanistan close

Published tisdag 26 oktober 2010 kl 12.32
It is now all about finding the right form of words, says the prime minister

The prime minister says that he is positive towards the idea of setting an end date for Swedish military operations in Afghanistan.

This could signal an easy agreement with the Social Democrats. The government's proposal on the Afghanistan force will be put before the parliament on the fourth of November, next week.

The Social Democrats' Mona Sahlin left the prime minister's office on Tuesday morning saying that she has high hopes for an agreement.

In their election manifesto the red-green opposition parties wanted a date set for the end of the Swedish military mission, and the government parties have in the past opposed this idea.

But on Tuesday Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said to news agency TT that setting a clear purpose for the Afghanistan force, including talking about set dates, was a good idea.
