To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many UK personnel are working for the UN assistance mission in Afghanistan. (246709)

The UK strongly supports the work of the UN assistance mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), and we work closely with them there, including through our embassy in Kabul. UNAMA employs 16 British citizens directly. While no Government personnel are currently employed with UNAMA, we are holding discussions with them on providing further UK staff to the mission.
