All UK troops assigned to NATO's Resolute Support Mission will drawdown along with allies and partners. Military commitments are a decision for the Government of the day. Any decisions on our future presence will be made in consultation with our NATO Allies. We continue to support the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, including its efforts to counter terrorism, through our diplomatic and development work and support to the security sector.
