Polish soldiers ready in Afghanistan
1300 Polish soldiers stationed in Afghanistan are getting ready to officially commence their mission. Their aim is to achieve full combat readiness at the end of May/ beginning of June which means that they will then be ready to patrol their region and face the Taliban forces if such a need arises.
According to analysts, Polish troops in Afghanistan will have to face not only risky military operations but also an increasing dislike for foreign troops manifested by local communities. However, general Mieczyslaw Bieniek, an adviser to Afghani minister of defense in Kabul is confident their job will be done properly. Speaking for Polish Radio he reiterated that only the best and most experienced soldiers were sent to that country. Polish troops are stationed in four bases in the southern and eastern part of Afghanistan.
