Obama reaffirms partnership with Afghanistan
President Barack Obama on Wednesday reaffirmed the US commitment to build a secure and stable Afghanistan and to defeat the Taliban and al-Qaeda, DPA reported.
After meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Washington, Obama noted the progress that has been made in recent years but cautioned there are still "daily challenges" the Kabul government is facing in providing for its people.
"Much more work needs to be done," he said at a press conference with Karzai.
Karzai was in Washington for days of high level talks with Obama and senior US officials on a broad range of subjects including security, economic development, good governance and agriculture.
