(SBU) The Dutch received the information from reftel with
sincere interest and an expression of shared concerns.
Pol-Mil Officer delivered reftel points on September 19 to
the Afghanistan Policy Advisor at the Ministry of Defense and
the Afghanistan Coordinator at the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. As the Dutch are preparing to assume command of

coordination with all forces operating in areas of
responsibility. Dutch commanders are concerened that
operations conducted in their area of responsibility without
