From the start of operations in southern Afghanistan, the Government have made it clear that our overriding aim is to deliver reconstruction and development. All military activity seeks to support this aim. That message is delivered at every level in Afghanistan, whether on diplomatic channels, through troops on the ground or by interlocutors with provincial government, NGOs and the citizens of the country.
