"Afghanistan's defence minister on Tuesday gave one of the clearest signs yet that Kabul is open to permanent basing of US forces in the country, saying his government was in discussions with the US that could include air bases in Afghanistan after the current nation-building process ends," Peter Spiegel writes in yesterday's Financial Times.
"General Abdul Rahim Wardak said the details of what would constitute a long-term US presence were still under discussion. But he signalled Kabul was eager for 'enduring arrangements' that could include permanent air bases or 'pre-positioned' military equipment that would be used by rapidly deployed US forces in a crisis."
