The European Union has proposed allowing member states to supply arms to the anti-Taleban forces in Afghanistan.
E-U ambassadors meeting today (Wednesday) in Brussels agreed that the community's interpretation of a United Nations resolution adopted in 2000 should be modified.
The resolution called for a ban on arms sales to Afghanistan. Under the revised interpretation, it would apply only to Taleban-controlled areas of the country.
The change must be approved at the next meeting of the E-U foreign ministers next month.
