The United States has shelved plans almost to halve the US force in Afghanistan by the end of the year.
Troop numbers will be reduced from the current level of just under 10,000 - but only to 8,400 instead of 5,500 as previously planned.
The Taliban insurgency had prompted the administration to rethink, influenced by senior military figures and diplomats.
