The Government today announced the redeployment of about 50 New Zealand Special Air Service personnel to Afghanistan.
The deployment, for up to 180 days, will be the third rotation of New Zealand's SAS soldiers to Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Helen Clark said that continued efforts to improve security were essential for the credibility of Afghan parliamentary and provincial elections scheduled for September.
"Failure to stabilise Afghanistan would have consequences for the campaign against terrorism," Miss Clark said in a statement.
