Afghan officials: Talks for deal with US faltering
Afghan officials: Talks for Afghan-US deal falter, top Afghan adviser threatens resignation
By The Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) ' Current and former Afghan officials say efforts to forge a deal to govern the American military presence in Afghanistan beyond a planned U.S. troop withdrawal in 2014 are faltering.

They say obstacles include disputes over the transfer of American-run prisons and internal clashes in the Afghan president's inner circle that led one of his top advisers to threaten resignation.

Former key foreign policy adviser Davood Moradian said Monday that the strategic partnership deal might not be ready for a NATO summit in May.

The other spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the negotiations.

A U.S. embassy spokesman, Gavin Sundwall, told The Associated Press that America had always said it is more important to get the right agreement than to get an agreement.
