The presence of US troops in Afghanistan after the 2014 pullout would be "modest", Pentagon said.
The scheduled meeting between US Prez Barack Obama and his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai next month is expected to lay the rules of presence of US troops.
The comments by Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, made clear
that it was Iraq who refused to let the US military remain
under the Americans` terms.
Twenty of al Qaeda`s 30 prominent leaders in the region had been killed in the past year.
The number of US troops killed in Afghan has roughly doubled in the first three months of 2010 compared to the same period last year.
