A press release from the defense and foreign ministries shows that the Dutch army must go in exactly this direction to ensure a safe return. The withdrawal takes place between May 1 and September 11. The reinforcement is to prevent Taliban attacks while leaving.

The eighty soldiers had been on alert for the NATO mission in northern Afghanistan since February.
“The expected deteriorating security situation is the reason that prompted the NATO commander in northern Afghanistan to request the Netherlands to deploy 80 soldiers,” the statement said. They need to strengthen the security of the NATO forces already in place. These soldiers also contribute to orderly completion of the mission and the safe return of Dutch soldiers from Afghanistan. “
