Last week I led a Foreign Affairs Committee visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan - some photos of the visit are available on my Flickr photostream.
We met senior political figures and parliamentarians in both countries including Afghan Vice Presidents Khalili and Massoud and Pakistani Prime Minister Gilani.
Here is what I said on the British Embassy Kabul website. Here is a report of our meeting with Parliamentarians in Pakistan from Associated Press. You can also follow the deliberations and evidence sessions of our Committee on the Committee website including our session on 21 April
I was particularly pleased to see the progress of education for girls in Afghanistan when I visited a girls school in Kabul.
