Spanish troops to start leaving Afghanistan in January
By:

DEFENCE minister Carme Chacón confirms that troops will start to be withdrawn from Afghanistan in January.

She says once Afghan president Hamid Karzai decides that the running of the country can be transferred to its political authorities, Spanish soldiers – particularly those in Bagdhis, where most of them are based – can come home.

Chacón was asked about the situation in Afghanistan during today's Constitution Day conference, and stressed that the changes afoot were on schedule and were largely thanks to the excellent work of the Spanish armed forces.

She added that it would also be necessary to wait to find out the decisions taken over the Afghanistan situation at the forthcoming Bonn Conference.
