This semiannual report covers the period from April 1 to Sept. 30, 2012, during which time the Coalition and our Afghan partners blunted the insurgent summer offensive, continued to transition the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) into security lead, pushed violence out of most populated areas, and coalition member nations signed several international agreements to support the long-term stability and security of Afghanistan. In May, President Obama and President Karzai signed a Strategic Partnership Agreement, reflecting the two governmentsäó» desire for an enduring partnership. At the May 2012 Chicago Summit, NATO-International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) nations also pledged to support Afghanistan through 2017. At the Tokyo Conference in July, the international community declared its support for Afghanistan by linking specific reforms in governance and rule-of-law by the Afghan government with sustained financial assistance through 2015. Yet the campaign continued to face challenges, including a rise in insider attacks. The U.S. completed the final stage of the phased recovery of the U.S. surge forces during the reporting period. As of Sept. 20, 2012, the U.S. completed the drawdown of all 33,000 surge forces, consistent with the plan outlined by President Obama in June 2011. Approx. 68,000 U.S. forces now remain in Afghanistan, and planning continues to determine future force level requirements. The U.S. remains committed to the long-term security and stability of Afghanistan. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
