(CNN) - U.S. troops will stay in Afghanistan beyond 2014 if Afghans want them to, Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday.
The United States does not intend "to govern or nation-build" as that "is the responsibility of the Afghan people and they are fully capable of it," Biden said, according to a journalist traveling with him.
"We stand ready to help you in that effort ... after 2014," the vice
President Barack Obama has announced plans to begin withdrawing some
troops from parts of Afghanistan this July.
