British PM on Afghanistan visit

world Updated: Jul 06, 2011 08:51 IST

British Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in Afghanistan for an official visit, a government official said.

Cameron arrived in the country on Monday, the official told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

He and Afghan President Hamid Karzai would hold a joint press conference on Tuesday.

Britain has over 9,500 troops in Afghanistan serving within the framework of the NATO-International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) to help stabilize the war-battered nation.

Foreign officials often pay unannounced visits to Afghanistan and leave the country secretly due to security reasons.
