BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Any potential U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan will not be done alone but with other allies, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defence Patrick Shanahan said on Thursday.

"There will be no unilateral troop reduction, it will be coordinated," he told reporters following a meeting of NATO defence ministers. "We came out of here much stronger and coordinated."
