Afghanistan's parliament voted by an overwhelming majority to ratify a strategic partnership agreement with the United States signed earlier this month.

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to Kabul to sign a deal with his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai that will cement post-war ties with Kabul after 2014, when NATO-led combat forces leave Afghanistan.
