The Defence Secretary has said he welcomes a report by MPs about the future of Afghanistan after British forces leave which he said shares the government's "vision".
Philip Hammond said: "I welcome the publication of this Report, which shares our vision of an Afghanistan that can maintain its own security and never again be a safe haven for international terrorism.
"The fact that Afghan security forces are now leading on more than 80 per cent of all security operations across the country, shows we are well on the way to achieving that aim".
