British troops could return home from Afghanistan even faster than planned, David Cameron has said, as 3,800 troops are scheduled to be withdrawn by the end of next year.
Speaking to reporters at Camp Bastion, the main operational headquarters for British troops, Mr. Cameron said the proposed timetable for troop withdrawals was flexible.
Of course there is always flexibility in any plan, he said. But I would make the point that so far, things have surprised on the upside in terms of the capability of the Afghan forces. So we might be able to move a little bit faster. Lets see how things go. Of course there is flexibility.
He added that the deadline of ending combat operations by 2014 was fixed. By the end of 2014, there wont be British forces in a Combat role.
