Paris Comes To Canada’s Aid With More Troops

France on Thursday eased simmering tensions within Nato over Afghanistan when its defence minister said it would send troops to the violent south of the country to help Canadian forces there.

Canada has threatened to pull its 2,500 troops out of Kandahar province unless its Nato allies sent 1,000 more troops. After a meeting of Nato defence ministers in Vilnius, Hervé Morin, France’s defence minister, said: “I’ve said we’ll help the Canadians.”
