UK expected to deploy more troops to Afghanistan
As part of the proposals, the British training mission in the war-devastated country would also be extended by at least a year, Daily Mail said.
Prime Minister David Cameron could announce extending a 450-strong training mission into 2017, as Afghanistan continues to slide into chaos.
The UK will likely consider boosting security in Kabul, where the British mission is based, with an extra deployment of more than 100 soldiers.
Cameron is expected to make the announcement at the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw next month, the newspaper said.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman was quoted as saying: “While we routinely look at the support we and other NATO partners give Afghanistan, no decisions have been made.”
Currently 450 British military personnel are deployed in the country in the framework of the Resolute Support mission, led by NATO, to train, assist and advise the Afghan forces.
