British Department of Defense: We Can Attack Afghanistan, Based and Beyond
Britain has once again commented on the situation with the withdrawal of its contingent from Afghanistan. We will remind that earlier in London announced plans to retain special forces in this country, which will act as "instructors" to continue the training of the Afghan army.
At the same time, the British military did not report what prevented them from preparing the Afghan army for 20 years of military presence, at least so that its representatives would not surrender entire cities without a fight, or at least did not cross over to adjacent territory. Although there is a version that the preparation on the part of the British and other representatives of NATO could consist in the fact that some detachments under the guise of a retreating Afghan army infiltrate, for example, into the territory of Tajikistan.
New statements from Britain are related to plans to launch attacks on terrorists in Afghanistan. The UK Department of Defense says it is "considering the option of conducting remote missions."
From a statement by a spokesman for the British military:
In particular, it points to the possible use of the British military base in Cyprus for such strikes.
From the statement:
At the same time, London is considering the possibility of deploying its strike forces "closer to Afghanistan." It has not yet been announced which specific country for such a placement can be discussed.
Earlier it was reported that the United States continues to negotiate with the authorities of the Central Asian republics for a possible partial deployment of its contingents after the withdrawal from Afghan territory.
