Jan. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Efforts by Afghanistan’s government to reintegrate former Taliban fighters are bearing fruit and will be a key task in fighting the insurgents this year, U.S. General David Petraeus was cited as saying by German newspaper Rheinische Post.

Petraeus, the U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, said international troops will stay in the country as advisers and trainers after the planned handover of security to Afghan commanders in 2014, according to an interview carried on the newspaper’s website today.

He wouldn’t say which regions might be handed over to Afghan control in 2011, the newspaper said.
