UK MPs warn of civil war after Afghan pullout

10.04.2013, 14:17
A committee of British MPs say Afghanistan could descend into civil war amid a Taliban resurgence after multinational forces pull out after 2014, unless the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) are given continuing training and equipment.
The Commons Defence Select Committee report into the future of Afghanistan says: "We remain concerned that, as withdrawal and the final handover to the ANSF draws near, violence levels have not fallen. "The lack of progress in reducing violence does not auger well for improving security and economic development on a long-term sustainable basis".
