William Hague: Nato's Afghan move has minimal UK impact

Foreign Secretary William Hague has insisted Nato's decision to scale down joint patrols with Afghan forces would have a minimal impact on UK strategy.

He played down the significance of the decision when questioned by the Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee. He said: "There has not been any change in strategy on this."

Two British soldiers were killed at the weekend in one of a series of attacks by "rogue" Afghan troops.

On Monday, the government said such actions would not derail operations, leading to questions over when it was told about Nato's decision.
