Afghanistan (Force Protection)
Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government
Philip Hammond (Runnymede and Weybridge, Conservative)
As I have said, we believe that the Afghans are doing everything that is appropriate. They have done everything we suggested that they should do, so we have no complaints at all. I can tell my hon. Friend that President Karzai has made it clear at the highest level to his military commanders and his Cabinet that this is a pivotal issue and that they have to resolve it and step up to the plate.
