Ahead of tonight's talks between Prime Minister David Cameron, Afghan president Hamid Karzai and Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari, a Downing Street statement has said a "stable Afghanistan" is in the UK's best interests.
As the Prime Minister has set out previously, a stable Afghanistan is not just in the interests of Afghans, but also in the interests of their neighbours and the UK. We share the same vision for Afghanistan: a secure, stable and democratic country that never again becomes a haven for international terror.
We are working together to achieve it and Afghanistan's neighbours have a vital role to play. It is vital not just for the future security of their citizens, but for their prosperity too.
