Afghanistan's former Spy Chief has accused the US of looking for excuses to pull out of Afghanistan.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Amrullah Saleh said Barack Obama should be focusing on security, instead of talking about the deadline for withdrawal.

He also criticised current president Hamid Karzai, and said the US was presenting Afghanistan with a "zero options" strategy.

"They should not just say because of one person's negotiation tactics, we are considering zero options," he said.
