U.S., Afghanistan Reach Aid Deal

The U.S. agreed to provide assistance to the Afghan people for ten years after the military pullout, the two countries announced Sunday. America will assist with aid and a limited number of troops. The pact is meant to provide assurance that the US isn't abandoning Afghanistan after the 2014 exit. The agreement was worked out by Afghan National Security Adviser Rangin Dadfar Spanta and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker.
