Uplift to number of UK troops in Afghanistan:

The UK and international partners have committed significant resources in Afghanistan to help rebuild and stabilise the country. Since the drawdown of force elements, British troops are now stationed in Kabul where they provide force protection and a training and advisory role to the Afghan National Army Officer Academy and Afghan National Police.

These have been made possible by improved security provided by international troops and the Afghan National Security Forces.
