French Troops Arrive in Afghanistan - 2001-12-02


The first French troops have arrived in Afghanistan with the aim of securing Mazar-i-Sharif airport.

The French news agency quotes French President Jacques Chirac saying reinforcements will soon follow as part of the humanitarian operation to repair the runway and de-mine the area.

President Chirac has backed the U-S campaign in Afghanistan, pledging military support hours after U-S led forces began the war on terrorism.

French troops arrived in southern Uzbekistan in November, but remained at their base waiting for the go-ahead from Uzbek authorities and the Northern Alliance.
