Afghan elders at a grand assembly in Kabul have called for a security deal with the US to be signed this year.

The pact allows thousands of US troops to remain in Afghanistan once combat operations end in 2014.

But President Hamid Karzai, who wants to delay the deal, told delegates he would only sign it once the US had brought peace to his country.

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