British PM backs talks with Taliban

David Cameron, who made surprise visit to military base in Afghanistan, favours peace talks.

    The British Prime Minister has made a surprise visit to a military base in Afghanistan's Helmand province.

    David Cameron, who flew to Afghanistan on Saturday, said he backed talks with the Taliban.

    But the senior British officer in Afghanistan says the opportunity to bring peace to the country was missed more than ten years ago.
