  • Future of the Polish mission in Afghanistan
After the worst single attack on the Polish armed forces in its nine-year mission in Afghanistan will there be calls for Polish army to pull out of the country?

The plan for Polish army, as outlined by president Bronislaw Komorowski, is to withdraw troops from the troubled country in 2014. With the killing of five Polish soldiers in Afghanistan being the highest death toll in a single attack since the Polish mission began, will there be calls for the Poles to return home immediately? John Beauchamp talks about the future of Polish mission in Afghanistan with Polish Radio's Middle Eastern specialist Jarosław Kociszewski.
