The report focuses on the planned withdrawal of combat troops by the end of 2014 and the transfer of responsibility for security to the Afghan National Security Forces.

It also raises concerns that Afghan forces may lack ‘enablers’ like helicopter support and medical care after the drawdown of international forces and calls for the start of an Afghan-led peace process, including the Taliban, before the UK and other forces end operations.

    WE ONLY PRAY THAT ALL THAT MR HAMMOND HOPES COMES TRUE!! WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN THOUGHTS OF COURSE. WE WILL CHEER WHEN ALL OF OUR TROOPS LEAVE AFGHANISTAN AND LEAVE THE AFGHANS TO RUN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH OUR TROOPS WHEREVER THEY ARE.
