Office's Afghanistan Group told Poloff February 16 that the
UK has been working with Iceland to increase military
cooperation in Afghanistan, and provided Iceland a seat at
last year's London Conference on Afghanistan on the basis of
London's understanding that Iceland is committed to actively
helping Afghanistan. Rose added that Denmark is also in a
position to be very helpful in pressing Iceland on this
matter.
