Obama yet to decide how many US troops will remain in Afghanistan

NATO allies discussed keeping a NATO force of between 8,000 and 12,000 troops in Afghanistan after 2014, but US President Barack Obama has not decided how many American troops will remain there, Pentagon spokesman George Little said on Friday.


"A range of 8-12,000 troops was discussed as the possible size of the overall NATO mission, not the US contribution," Little said after a NATO defense ministers' meeting in Brussels. (Reuters)
