A last-minute intervention by US Secretary of State John Kerry may have sealed a security deal allowing US forces to remain in Afghanistan after the end of next year.

 

Kerry has offered to send a letter, admitting past American mistakes, to a meeting of Afghan elders, a Loya Jirga, convened to consider the deal.

 

Talks have been going on to produce a document acceptable to both sides.

 

If there is no deal, Washington will pull out all its troops next year.
