Poland's Afghan mission purely training in 2012

Poland's Afghan mission purely training in 2012

Poland's leaders say they want the country's military mission in Afghanistan to become a pure training mission in 2012 and to end altogether in 2014 in line with NATO plans.
President Bronislaw Komorowski and members of Prime Minister Donald Tusk's government met Wednesday to discuss the position Poland will take at a NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal, later this month.
Komorowski said NATO plans to end the Afghan mission in 2014 in line with Poland's views and Warsaw would like to switch to a purely training mission in 2012.
Poland has 2,600 troops in Afghanistan who train, patrol and occasionally engage in combat.
Komorowski is the Polish military's commander-in-chief.
