UK Plans to Ramp up Military  Presence in Afghanistan

KABUL - The United Kingdom plans to ramp up its military presence in Afghanistan to about 600 personnel, reports the Forces Network.
The additional British military personnel would join NATO’s Resolute Support Mission training and mentoring Afghan forces.
Britain has repeatedly been urged by NATO and the United States to send more troops and step up assistance to Afghanistan.
“The next tranche of UK troops come from 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, their first visit to Afghanistan since 2012.”
According to the website, Britain has promised deploying an additional 85 personnel to join the mission this year. (Pajhwok)
