US pull out 'sends the wrong signal' to Nato partners


The UN special representative to Afghanistan, Kai Eide, has criticised President Obama's pledge to begin withdrawing forces there in 2011.

He said it sends the 'wrong signal' to other countries involved in military and civilian projects in Afghanistan. He fears it will also damage long term sustainable development.

The full interview with Kai Eide was broadcast on Wednesday 27th January.
