An Afghan child looks at a Canadian Soldier as Afghan National Army soldiers and Canadian elements of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment conduct a cordon search mission. ANA and Afghan National Police conduct partnered dismounted patrols and cordon and search missions on a regular basis around the Panjwai'i District in Kandahar province. Ultimately, the priority for ISAF (International Security Assistance Forces) is to build up the ANA, and ANP, and hand over security to the Afghan forces.
