General Petraeus Meeting

Asked for information on the Prime Minister’s meeting with General Petraeus, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that there was not a lot to add to what was said at the morning press briefing; General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker were passing through London and as they normally would, they called in to see the Prime Minister. It was a catch-up meeting more than anything else and there were some words from General Petraeus who had given an interview to the BBC.

Put that General Petraeus had said in his BBC interview that one of the things discussed at the meeting was troop numbers in Basra and that it was too early to say whether they would change, the PMS said that that was a fair summary of the position.
