300 British Marines Transferred To Bagram

On Thursday, 300 British marines and servicemen from other military units of Great Britain were transferred from the British Isles to the air base of Bagram, 20 km northeast of Kabul, Afghanistan The task facing the British military is to make preparations for the arrival of advanced detachments of the International Security Assistance Force, which are expected in Afghanistan in the next few days, said an official spokesman for the British defence ministry. In the meantime in Kabul, the provisional Afghan government and the British military are still negotiating a military-and-technical agreement that would define the status of the ISAF contingent stationed in Afghanistan. At this moment, it is still unclear how many servicemen will join the ISAF contingent. The issue will be discussed in London during a Friday meeting of military representatives from the states that are willing to join the mission, said the defence ministry spokesman. 21 states announced their willingness to join the ISAF last week, but the total number of servicemen and quotas for participation in the peacekeeping mission have not been discussed yet.
