In response to the suggestion that there was a difference in opinion between the US and the UK on overall strategy and tactics in Afghanistan, the PMS said that the Government was working very closely with the US and other NATO allies in Afghanistan as part of the international effort. Asked whether the International Security Assistance Force had sufficient ground forces between them, the PMS replied that such matters were considered on an ongoing basis by the military, as people would expect. As and when the position changed, the military would provide advice and a decision would be taken, but that was not where the Government was at the moment.

Asked if the Government was considering reinforcements and whether they were happy with troop levels at the present time, the PMS reiterated that the Government kept troop levels under constant review, as people would expect.
