Poland said on Thursday it would send 1,000 new troops to join its existing 100-strong contingent in Afghanistan in response to NATO calls for reinforcements.

"Poland will increase its contingent in Afghanistan. We will send 1,000 additional troops from February," said Defence Ministry spokesman Leszek Laszczak.
