Derek Twigg Visits Afghanistan and Pakistan

06 Nov 2013

Derek met British and Afghan commanders and service personnel in Helmand at Camp Bastion as part of a House of Commons Defence Select Committee visit last week. The visit also included Kabul and Pakistan.

Derek said: “ It was good to go and see what was happening in both countries and to meet a variety  of military people and politicians, including President Karzai. I was very impressed by the work our Armed Forces are carrying out in Afghanistan and they deserve our thanks and praise. The Afghan Army is taking the lead now and is also demonstrating its increased effectiveness and bravery, but Afghanistan will continue to need the support of the international community to ensure stability and increased security”
