The AMS Collaboration has recently released precision data on cosmic ray (CR) leptons and protons at high energies. Interesting progresses have also been made on the measurement of CR nuclei, such as the boron-to-carbon ratio or the lithium spectrum, up to ~ TeV/nucleon energies. In order to provide a description these data, I consider a diffusion model of CR propagation which allows for latitudinal variations of the CR diffusion properties in the Galactic halo. I discuss the role of high-precision data on light CR nuclei in resolutely testing this model and the key propagation parameters.
