US-Afghan talks: 'Karzai did not ask US for apology' - John Kerry

Afghan President Hamid Karzai did not ask for an apology during talks with the US, John Kerry has confirmed.

The US Secretary of State spoke after agreeing the text of a bilateral security agreement with Afghan officials, which would pave the way for some US troops to remain in Afghanistan beyond the 2014 withdrawal date.

The draft is before a meeting known as the Loya Jirga.

Mr Kerry stressed that US forces would have "a very limited role" after 2014.
