Agreement With Afghanistan Pledges Support For 10 Years After 2014 Withdrawal
The text of the agreement will be sent to the presidents of both countries to sign.
…the United States is already anticipating that it will make a substantial contribution toward paying for Afghanistan’s security forces beyond 2014 and is searching for contributions from its NATO partners. The amount is not settled but a figure of $2.7 billion a year has been under discussion. There would be additional foreign aid for civilian fields.
At some point, a security agreement will detail if and under what circumstances American troops will be positioned in the country in the post-2014 period, according to senior American officials.
