UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has made a statement on UK forces in Afghanistan as the North Atlantic Council announces end of mission.


Statement, Whitehall, 14 April 2021: Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: “The people of Afghanistan deserve a peaceful and stable future.

“As we drawdown, the security of our people currently serving in Afghanistan remains our priority and we have been clear that attacks on Allied troops will be met with a forceful response.
