Global reports that NATO would like Canadian troops to continue training the Afghan army after 2014 and the Prime Minister is not dismissing the possibility.

It appears Prime Minister Stephen Harper is open to keeping Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan a little longer. “We will assess what is necessary to make sure that Afghanistan continues to progress toward being a state that is not a threat to global security, and that is able to take care of its own security,” he said in Ottawa on Monday. “Those are our objectives and beyond that, we haven’t made any final decisions.”
