Hungary still planning Afghanistan reinforcement

Hungary is going ahead with plans to upgrade equipment for its PRT mission in Afghanistan in spite of a call by President Hamid Karzai to demobilise the NATO reconstruction teams, the daily Népszabadság daily said on Thursday.


Hungary's defence ministry told the paper that it was going ahead with a plan to deploy Mi-17 helicopters in 2012 in support of the provincial reconstruction mission which it leads in Pul-i-Khumri, Baghlan province.

At the Munich Security Conference earlier this week, Karzai called for the disbandment of NATO's PRT missions, causing widespread concerns among experts and activists in Afghanistan, according to press reports.

Hungary has already procured extra armoured vehicles from the United States for its Baghlan mission.
