After US, Britain Hints At Troops’ Drawdown Possibility From Afghanistan

Britain Defence Secretary Ben Wallace on Thursday said the country is likely to follow US and drawdown its troops from conflict-ravaged Afghanistan , adding that Britain would continue to protect the security of the country.

The announcement has come days after President Donald Trump affirmed that American troops will be reduced to half in Afghanistan by mid-January.

Wallace, however, stressed that the withdrawal by both UK and US was not a total pull out. He said if the US withdraws at some stage, Britain will also seek to plan a similar move.
