On 17-20 July Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski will pay a visit to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, where he will attend the International Conference on Afghanistan on 20 July 2010. The main purpose of the Conference is to discuss and endorse a unified plan for a gradual takeover of responsibility to Afghanistan. The Conference will be attended by Foreign Ministers of countries involved in stability and reconstruction missions. It is the first time the Conference is organized by the Afghan authorities in cooperation with international partners, particularly the United Nations

Rare weapons in the armed forces in the world.

Not in here. The SCAR has been tested by a few LE Tactical/Military SOF units.
Still, GROM and PSK have their HK416s (Formozas issued G36 and a few M14s), most LEOs got HK G-36s/416s (while others still pack old school AKMS), few SCARs running around.
I'm not in the know but it kinda looks like a 'oh US SOF got them so we're that ____ (insert your word in here)'.

What you need to understand is, that were still pretty much 'homo sovieticus' so to speak. A lot of photos, 'specially regarding tactical units, will show gucci gear/guns, where often most of the guys that are not in the spot light are left with....whats left. So when you a SWAT guy running around with a SCAR or a HK416, you should note that some other SWAT guy maybe not far is carrying an older gun, 'cause there wasn't that much money to issue the gucci stuff to all fot he guys. Same with other units, especially those that do not get deployed.

From what I've read, the SCAR has its allies and those that don't like it.

Btw, shouldn't this be in the eighter LEO section or the firearms section?
