Alistair Burt on Afghanistan: 'We will go on'

Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt has called a US helicopter crash in Afghanistan a "tragedy" but said it was too early to say with certainty what caused it. Taliban insurgents are believed to have shot down the Chinook helicopter in Wardak province.

In an interview with Mariella Frostrup on The Andrew Marr Show he said "we will go on".

He continued, "The determination of both the US, ourselves and the people of Afghanistan to make their country secure for the future is undiminished by an incident like that, though it reminds us of the cost."
