Afghanistan

Germany is engaged in armed conflict in Afghanistan as part of a UN-authorised, NATO-led mission, the International Security Assistance Force - ISAF (see Afghanistan profile, Current conflicts section). As of June 2012 it contributed 3900 troops to ISAF.

ISAF, which aims to assist the Afghan Transitional Authority in creating and maintaining a safe and secure environment in Kabul and its surrounding area, was created in December 2001, authorised by UN Security Council Resolution 1386 and successive resolutions.
