My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary and the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, held a joint seminar at Lancaster House on 6 February 2008 and visited Afghanistan together on 7 February 2008. They discussed a full range of issues regarding our shared commitment to supporting the people and the Government of Afghanistan. Since their visit they have been in frequent contact to discuss all aspects of progress in Afghanistan. The UK holds regular dialogue with all our partners in Afghanistan as part of our undertaking to help the Government of Afghanistan build a peaceful and sustainable state.
