Hopes rise for Afghan-US security accord

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 - 8:15

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.
