Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has made a surprise visit to Afghanistan, seeking assurances from President Hamid Karzai that he is doing all he can to halt "insider attacks".

Gillard met the Afghan leader in Kabul while also visiting Australian troops for a barbecue at their base at Tarin Kowt.

She raised concerns about the so-called green-on-blue attacks in which uniformed Afghans turn their weapons against their international allies.

NATO has struggled to counter them and assaults have spiked this year.
