Afghanistan Ratifies Agreement on U.S. Forces Beyond 2014

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani today signed the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) between Kabul and Washington and the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA). The Lower and Upper Houses of Parliament had already ratified the agreements, which will pave the way for the presence of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan beyond 2014 to train and advice Afghan security forces.
