Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan, 07.12.2016.
One of the largest cargo aircraft in the world, the Antonov AN-124, regularly touches down in Mazar-e Sharif to supply the 850 German soldiers in Camp Marmal.
The Bundeswehr is to carry on advising, supporting and training Afghan security forces in future. There will be a ceiling of 980 on the troops that will be made available. The Cabinet has extended the mandate for the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission by another year. This must still be approved by the German Bundestag.
