Criticism grows ahead of top-level Afghan German meeting in Berlin | World | Deutsche Welle | 10.05.2009
Regional security and Germany's role in Afghanistan's reconstruction top the agenda for Sunday's meeting between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Afghan President Hamid Karzai, in Berlin.  

The talks between Merkel and Karzai are expected to focus on the reconstruction of Afghanistan, the ongoing fight against the Islamist Taliban and the increasingly dangerous situation faced by German troops in northern Afghanistan.

German news magazine Der Spiegel reported in its latest edition that the Taliban was planning massive attacks on German soldiers to put pressure on politicians as the September general election draws close.
