Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

PRIME Min­is­ter Ju­lia Gil­lard will get a first-hand in­sight into how US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama sees the tran­si­tion to lo­cal se­cu­rity forces in Afghanistan when they meet this week. Ms Gil­lard is in Wash­ing­ton for her first of­fi­cial visit as PM. While she met with Mr Obama on the side­lines of the APEC sum­mit in Yoko­hama late last year, the meet­ing at the White House on will be the first time they have spo­ken at length about mov­ing troops out of Afghanistan.
