Kerry in Kabul to Discuss Security, Taliban Talks Amid Frictions

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kabul today to meet Afghan President Hamid Karzai, with whom he’ll discuss the conditions for any U.S. troops to remain beyond 2014, the outlook for peace talks with the Taliban and the security and economic transition.

Kerry’s visit, his first as the top U.S. diplomat, was not announced in advance for security reasons. The trip comes on the heels of a series of disputes between the two nations over the transfer of detainees to Afghan custody, the expulsion of U.S. Special Forces from a restive area and Karzai’s recent accusation that the U.S. was colluding with the Taliban to stoke violence in his country.
