[by:www.Tingvoa.com - VOA英语网] [00:00.00]如果你喜欢voa英语网(www.Tingvoa.com),请介绍给更多的同学哦 [00:00.00]The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is expected to confirm [00:04.60]that he is sending hundreds more troops to Afghanistan, [00:07.09]bringing the total number of British troops there to about 9,500. [00:10.76]Britain has the second largest NATO contingent in Afghanistan [00:15.12]after the United States. [00:16.92]Our defense correspondent Caroline Wyatt reports. [00:19.41]In his statement on Afghanistan, [00:21.90]it's believed Mr. Brown will say he's agreed in principle [00:24.26]to send around 500 extra British troops to Helmand. [00:27.74]The military advice says that extra forces are needed [00:30.67]to help maintain progress [00:31.97]and dominate the ground more effectively [00:34.03]to keep the Taliban out of key areas. [00:36.08]However, there will be caveats. [00:38.50]The Prime Minister will want assurances from military chiefs [00:41.37]that the extra troops will be properly equipped. [00:44.10]But he'll also expect Britain's NATO partners to follow suit [00:47.27]by offering more forces themselves. [00:49.33]NATO defense ministers are likely to discuss troop levels [00:52.69]on a meeting formally in Bratislava next week. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180510/556858.html
