HUNTSVILLE, Ontario — British Prime Minister David Cameron says he doesn't expect British troops to be in Afghanistan in five years' time.

Asked on Friday if the country's 10,000-strong deployment would be back home by the time of the next general election — scheduled for 2015 — Cameron told Britain's Sky News: "I want that to happen, make no mistake about it."

Cameron hasn't previously put a clear timetable on a withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and his aides in Huntsville where he is attending the G-8 meeting stress he's not setting a deadline or committing himself to a particular target.
