< 1 min

Loyal (Germany), October 2013

The magazine of the German army’s reservists’ association draws a balance of the Bundeswehr mission in Kunduz that is currebtly coming to an end with the dismantling and partial handover to the ANSF of the German PRT’s compaound. Thomas Ruttig is quoted here on the security situation, saying that – compared with the the time when the PRT opened – the security situation was drastically deteriorated in the province. Ruttig also points to the “lack of ability or willingness” of certain ANSF units in the region to counter the various militias – because some of the ANSF commanders control the very militias (in German).
