Need for Afghan progress 'signs'
Updated on 13 August 2010
Signs of progress in Afghanistan are needed within the next two years to convince military coalition partners that success there is possible, Nato's senior civilian representative in the country has said.
Mark Sedwill said both alliance members and the Afghans were "becoming impatient" but insisted the correct strategy and resources were now in place.
He described plans to hand over control of the country to Afghan forces by 2015 as "realistic" and said there were "channels of communication open" between the country's government and elements of the insurgency.
