Sweden is increasing its support for peacekeeping missions in Sudan and Afghanistan.

On Thursday the government decided to increase its contribution to the African Union mission in Sudan’s troubled Darfur province by around 2 million dollars. This is in addition to just under one million dollars already contributed.

The government is also doubled the size of the Swedish peacekeeping force in Afghanistan. There are currently around 100 Swedish soliders in the northern part of the country. But the Foreign Ministry says this will have to double when Sweden takes command of a provincial reconstruction team in Mazar-e-Sharif in March.
