On 9 November, the Luxembourg Council of Government (NOTE:

Luxembourg's participation in ISAF and KFOR through November
2009 and December 2009 respectively. The Council also
approved Luxembourg's participation in the EURFOR
Chad/Central African Republic (CAR) mission. Luxembourg's
participation in EURFOR - Chad/CAR will include up to three
soldiers and a 400,000 EUR contribution to the mission. All
