US relations with Afghanistan hit new low

Afghan president refuses to sign security pact to keep some US forces in his country until Washington brings peace.

    Relations between US President Barack Obama and his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai are at an all-time low as Washington prepares to pull out of the country in 11 months.

    If a security pact to keep some US forces in Afghanistan is not signed, they will all leave.

    Karzai has so far refused to sign the agreement, saying last month that the US must first bring peace to his country.
