Topic: U.S. to fund Afghan forces at peak level through 2017: officials


The United States will keep funding Afghan security forces at the targeted peak personnel level of 352,000 at least through the 2017 fiscal year, extending a financial commitment that has cost about $4 billion annually, U.S. officials said on Monday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of a news conference at Camp David, the U.S. presidential retreat, where Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has been meeting with senior U.S. officials ahead of talks at the White House on Tuesday. At the news conference on Monday, officials were expected to announce the resumption of regular high-level diplomatic and defense talks between Afghanistan and the United States.
