European Union foreign and defense ministers are expected Monday to give final approval for launching a police training mission in Afghanistan next month. The ministers would set a mid-June start date for the mission, for which 160 police experts would be deployed under the command of German police officer Friedrich Eichele, EU spokeswoman Cristina Gallach said. NATO has been pressing the EU step up training for Afghan police, in support of the alliance's military mission there and plans for local security forces to play bigger role. Under the plan, the EU mission would be based in Kabul, but also would have officers in regional commands across the country.
