The UK has made an enduring commitment to Afghanistan. We are now contributing around 470 troops in a non-combat role to the NATO Resolute Support Mission, principally focused on mentoring at the Afghan National Army Officer Academy to help develop the next generation of Afghan military leaders. The UK has also committed £70 million a year until 2017 to help sustain the Afghan National Security Forces and £178 million a year in development aid.
