Barack Obama has announced that American combat missions in Afghanistan will end this year.
The US president said in 2015, 9,800 US troops will remain in the country and that presence will be halved by the end of the year.
President Obama said the following year all troops will withdraw from the country.
In a press conference at the White House, the US president said: "This weekend I travelled to Afghanistan to thank the men and women and civilians as a grateful nation for the sacrifices made for our security."
