capture and murder of a British soldier apparently in Afghanistan showed the "high price" attention to stabilizing the country, David Cameron said Tuesday as he urged the Taliban to stop fighting.

Karzai said. "I want to express my condolences for the recent loss of a British soldier"
The Prime Minister insisted that the campaign against the Taliban in Helmand province had "success" and control the transition to Afghan security was "on track".
Cameron presented his most direct appeal yet to elements of the Taliban to join the political process in Afghanistan. "It is difficult to reconcile with the people who killed their own soldiers or their own countrymen," he said. "For the Taliban, the message is clear: stop killing, stop the bombing, stop the fighting, lay down their arms, join the political process and you can be the future of this country
"I saw in my own country, in Northern Ireland, where people who participated in the attempted killing of civilians and bombing and maul police, soldiers and even politicians have become politicians and to participate in the government of that country.
"It can happen, and the message to the Taliban:. You can not win this fight, losing this fight, "
Cameron said the soldier's death on Monday was "a reminder of the high price we paid the vital work we do in Afghanistan and in Helmand province."
