Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that the United States and Afghanistan had completed a bilateral security agreement that will be submitted to a grand council of elders in Kabul the next day, but he stated emphatically that there had been no discussion of an American apology to President Hamid Karzai or to his nation as part of the deal. “President Karzai didnt ask for an apology. There was no discussion of an apology,” Mr. Kerry said. In interviews, Mr. Faizi emphasized that Mr. Karzais approval of the final wording about American home raids — the last remaining holdup to a long-term security agreement, according to Afghan and American officials — was contingent upon receiving such a message from Mr. Obama.
