British Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in Washington ahead of talks with U.S. President Barack Obama that are expected to include the transition of security in Afghanistan from NATO-led forces to Afghan control.
In a jointly written opinion article appearing in "The Washington Post" newspaper on March 13, the two leaders said their White House talks would help prepare for a May summit of NATO leaders in Chicago.
They said that would include discussions on how to shift the role of U.S. and British troops in Afghanistan to a "support role" for Afghan security forces and still ensure that Afghanistan is never again a haven for Al-Qaeda.
Cameron is being accompanied on the two-day visit by his wife, Samantha Cameron, who is expected to make several public appearnaces with U.S. first lady Michelle Obama.
