Processing was in the coalition agreement

The coalition agreement between the SPD, Greens and FDP states: “We want to work through the evacuation mission of the Afghanistan mission in a parliamentary committee of inquiry.” The “overall mission” should also be evaluated “in a commission of inquiry with scientific expertise”. “The knowledge gained must be prepared in a practical and future-oriented manner so that it can be incorporated into the design of future German missions abroad.”

After the abrupt withdrawal of the Bundeswehr and other NATO troops from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021 following a corresponding decision by the USA, the radical Islamic Taliban took power and took the capital Kabul. In August, like other countries, Germany hastily launched an evacuation campaign for its own citizens and Afghan helpers who remained in Afghanistan. However, many auxiliaries were left behind.
