British PM ‘cautiously optimistic’ on Afghan pullout

David Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday that next year must show “irreversible” progress in the anti-Taliban war, expressing hope that British troops could start leaving Afghanistan in 2011.

Making his second visit to the war-torn country as prime minister, Cameron met Afghan President Hamid Karzai days after leaked American cables showed heavy criticism by US and Afghan officials of the performance of British forces.

Cameron told a joint press conference with Karzai that he was “cautiously optimistic” over progress being made on the battlefield and about NATO plans to bring some troops home next year and the rest by the end of 2014.
