Karzai rebuke for US and Taliban

President Hamid Karzai has issued a stinging rebuke to the US and the Taliban, saying they are both guilty of sowing fears for post-2014 Afghanistan.

He said Taliban suicide attacks on Saturday were aimed at intimidation that would prolong the presence of international troops in Afghanistan.

Chuck Hagel is currently on his first visit to Afghanistan as US defence secretary.
