Germany is stepping up its presence in the north of Afghanistan. The Kunduz Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) office in Taloqan is today (23 Feb.) launching a new permanent Provincial Advisory Team (PAT).

In its updated Afghanistan Policy Paper published in autumn 2007 the German Government had already stated its intention to intensify civilian reconstruction and create a denser network of activities on the ground. The launch of the Taloqan PAT is a first major step towards realizing the plans for such a civilian-military network.

Working in close consultation with the Afghan Government and international partners, the Taloqan PAT will help create also in Takhar Province a better environment for successful reconstruction.
