KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Security throughout Afghanistan is now primarily the responsibility of Afghan forces, and the U.S.-led NATO coalition plays an entirely supporting role.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai made the announcement today. It opens the way for the full withdrawal of the foreign troops in 18 months.
And Karzai says he'll soon send representatives to the Gulf state of Qatar to discuss peace with the Taliban.
