Afghan mission 'in final phases', says David Cameron

The mission in Afghanistan is moving into its "final phases", David Cameron has said, at a joint press conference with US President Barack Obama.

Speaking at the White House, both leaders stressed that progress had been made in the country - despite losses of US, British and Afghan lives.

International forces will take on a support role from 2013, and Afghans will fully take over security in 2014.

The PM said they would not "give up on this mission", despite its "high cost".
