Afghanistan/decision temporarily to withdraw French public-sector employees – Interview given by the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry Spokesman to “i>TELE”

Paris, February 26, 2012

It’s a decision for the safety of our technical and civilian staff serving in Afghan government departments. It’s a temporary decision applying to around 20 of our compatriots whose job precisely is to help and assist the Afghan authorities and Afghan civil service.

We will redeploy our staff once the security situation is restored to normal, once the Afghan authorities have given assurances about the safety of our staff and once we’ve taken a decision on it collectively with our main ISAF partners./.
