Asked if it was chiselled in stone that UK combat troops would be out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014, the PMS replied that she wouldn’t characterise it in those terms. Both the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister had said that they would expect combat troops to be out of Afghanistan by 2015, in line with the current strategy.

That did not mean there would be no troops in Afghanistan, as we clearly had an ongoing mission there in a training role. Conditions on the ground would dictate all of the above, but the 2015 date was integral.
