The UK's contribution to NATO's Resolute Support Mission will draw down along with Allies and partners within a few months. The nature of NATO's future relationship with Afghanistan, including out of country training and the Senior Civilian Representative's office, is a matter for the UK to agree with the US and other Allies.
