Afghanistan: 23,000 American soldiers will be withdrawn

Nearly 23,000 U.S. troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan before the end of summer 2012, said the President Barack Obama during his annual address to Congress on Tuesday.

“10,000 of our soldiers have already returned home. 23,000 additional troops will leave Afghanistan by the end of the summer. The transfer of power to the Afghan authorities continues. We will cooperate with this country which will never again base attacks against the United States, “Obama said.

Washington announced its intention to withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
