France troops to stay in Afghanistan - Alain Juppe

France is not planning an immediate withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan, the French foreign minister has said.

Alain Juppe said he would not "succumb to panic" and remove all French soldiers, AFP news agency report.

On Friday, four French soldiers were killed and 15 were wounded during a shooting by an Afghan soldier in the northern province of Kapisa.

France temporarily suspended operations in Afghanistan after the incident.
