The White House said Tuesday that Rasmussen and President Barack Obama will discuss security issues, including Afghanistan, where NATO and the U.S. are preparing for the final withdrawal of international combat troops by the end of 2014. They’ll also discuss defense capabilities for allies and the sharing of the burden of improving security on both sides of the Atlantic.

The White House said the visit speaks to a common commitment for dealing with challenges in places ranging from the Balkans to the Indian Ocean.
