Obama to announce withdrawal of 34,000 Afghan troops

US President Barack Obama is going to announce today the withdrawal of 34,000 troops from Afghanistan by early 2014, media have cited unnamed sources as saying Tuesday.

Washington-watchers say the US military command has stepped up preparations for the Afghan pullout, although the White House is still to decide whether American service personnel will stay in the Islamic country after the general NATO withdrawal in 2014.
