Obama Pushes for Post-2014 Vision for Afghanistan

Sunday, 20 May 2012 02:48 PM

President Barack Obama says the NATO alliance agrees on a vision for post-2014 Afghanistan and is pressing world leaders to implement that strategy following a decade of war.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai says the transition in his country will mean that Afghanistan is "no longer a burden" on the rest of the world.

Obama and Karzai met on the sidelines of the NATO summit on Sunday to discuss Afghanistan's post-conflict future. Standing next to Obama, Karzai thanked Americans for the help that their "taxpayer money" has done in Afghanistan.

Obama told reporters that the NATO summit would focus on Afghanistan's move to peace and stability after the lengthy war.
