British Troops To withdraw From Afghanistan Within Weeks

The Daily Telegraph revealed that David Cameron has ordered British commanders to draw up plans to start pulling hundreds of British troops out of Afghanistan within weeks.

The Prime Minister is expected to discuss a co-ordinated Afghan withdrawal in London next week.

The prospect of an imminent British withdrawal is understood to have alarmed American generals, who are trying to resist political pressure for a major reduction in US troop numbers.
Well-placed sources said that US generals have delivered a blunt warning to their British counterparts about the impact of an early UK withdrawal. Senior American military officials have warned that such a move could strain special relations between the two countries.

Pakistani official have already feared such plan after the death of Bin-Laden.
