Delegates endorse Afghan goal for security handover

A major conference on Afghanistan has endorsed President Hamid Karzai's goal that Afghan forces should lead security operations across the country by 2014.

Mr Karzai renewed his call for Afghan control over security during the one-day conference in Kabul, attended by representatives from 70 countries.

He said delegates had approved his commitment to good governance.

The talks ended with an agreement to channel 50% of aid - up from 20% - through the Afghan government.
