The US has said a new post-2014 security deal with Afghanistan should be signed by the end of the year - conflicting with earlier comments from Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

The US said it was neither "practical nor possible" to delay the signing.

As a gathering of Afghan elders debated the pact, Karzai said it would not be signed until after 2014 elections.

The deal may see 15,000 foreign troops remain, although the US says it has not yet taken a decision on any presence.
