"Prime Minister Julia Gillard says Australia's plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan by 2014 is unchanged by President Barack Obama's plan to withdraw 10,000 U.S. troops by the end of the year. Gillard told reporters Thursday that Australia's 1,550 troops will remain in Uruzgan province training Afghan soldiers until the Afghans can take responsibility for security in the province."
