U.S. President Barack Obama has reportedly told Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbaev that Washington would remain "deeply involved in developments in Afghanistan and Central Asia" after U.S. troops leave Afghanistan.

Kazakhstan's presidency says U.S. President Barack Obama has told his Kazakh counterpart, Nursultan Nazarbaev, that Washington would remain "deeply involved in developments in Afghanistan and Central Asia" after U.S. troops leave Afghanistan.

The Kazakh presidency's website on June 21 posted excerpts from a letter that it said had been sent by Obama to Nazarbaev, saying that it was in the interests of both countries that Afghanistan should be a safe and prosperous country.

A spokesperson for the U.S. National Security Council told RFE/RL that "we never comment on presidential correspondence -- it's a policy that goes back several presidencies."
