US Secretary of State John Kerry said he was confident Washington would reach an agreement with Kabul that would allow American troops to remain in Afghanistan beyond 2014.

 

Afghan President Hamid Karzai suspended talks on the agreement in June, furious at the manner in which the Taliban opened an office in Qatar seen as an embassy for a government in waiting.

 

The deal would allow for a limited US military presence to remain in Afghanistan after the US-led NATO combat mission finishes at the end of next year.
