EU set to take a new line on Afghanistan
October 22, 2009

The foreign ministers of the EU’s 27 member states are to adopt a new strategy on Afghanistan and Pakistan when they meet in Luxembourg next Tuesday (27 October). The strategy aims to make the various strands of the EU’s civilian engagement more coherent and ensure that they complement member states’ military operations in Afghanistan. EU leaders are to endorse the strategy at their summit later next week (29-30 October).
