[by:www.Tingvoa.com - 千亿国际文娱网页版_千亿国际文娱|www.qy449.com]


[00:00.00]The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is expected to confirm

[00:04.60]that he is sending hundreds more troops to Afghanistan,

[00:07.09]bringing the total number of British troops there to about 9,500.

[00:10.76]Britain has the second largest NATO contingent in Afghanistan

[00:15.12]after the United States.

[00:16.92]Our defense correspondent Caroline Wyatt reports.

[00:19.41]In his statement on Afghanistan,

[00:21.90]it's believed Mr. Brown will say he's agreed in principle

[00:24.26]to send around 500 extra British troops to Helmand.

[00:27.74]The military advice says that extra forces are needed

[00:30.67]to help maintain progress

[00:31.97]and dominate the ground more effectively

[00:34.03]to keep the Taliban out of key areas.

[00:36.08]However, there will be caveats.

[00:38.50]The Prime Minister will want assurances from military chiefs

[00:41.37]that the extra troops will be properly equipped.

[00:44.10]But he'll also expect Britain's NATO partners to follow suit

[00:47.27]by offering more forces themselves.

[00:49.33]NATO defense ministers are likely to discuss troop levels

[00:52.69]on a meeting formally in Bratislava next week.
