Cameron Praises Afghan Power Sharing Ruling Out More Troops

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s decision to bring his main political rival into government on a visit to Kabul as he ruled out sending more combat troops to the country.

Cameron met Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah, the government’s chief executive officer, after landing in Kabul in a C-17 military transport plane today for an unannounced visit. Abdullah was runner-up in a disputed election that concluded last month and Ghani asked him to help run the government as part of a power-sharing agreement to avoid violence.
