WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Poland's prime minister says he wants NATO to develop a timetable to end its mission in Afghanistan.
Donald Tusk said Saturday that he plans to raise the issue at the alliance's next summit in Lisbon, Portugal, in November.
His comments came after a Polish soldier was killed earlier in the day by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Poland has some 2,600 troops there, making it the seventh largest troop contributor to NATO's mission.
Tusk said he wants NATO to work out "a possibly quick plan for ending the mission that should also be as precise as possible."
That message was echoed Saturday by Poland's acting president, Bronislaw Komorowski, who is running in a presidential race June 20.
