He said: "I last visited Afghanistan two years ago and this trip has shown me the vast amount of progress that has been made in that time.  Under General McChrystal there have been vast changes not only militarily bit also politically.  It will be a long road but Afghanistan is on the way to being a country that stands on its own feet."
