The chief Afghan presidential spokesperson Thursday said that there is no change in the country's stance over signing a controversial security and defense deal with the US. "Afghanistan wants to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement with the United States. But Afghanistan has its preconditions which must be met before signing the deal. It is on the US to consider and take sincere actions. The ball is now in their court," spokesperson Aimal Faizi told Xinhua. U.S. Senator John McCain says he is optimistic a deal will be reached soon: The Loya Jirga, or Afghan traditional grand assembly, endorsed the BSA in November, calling on President Hamid Karzai to sign it before the end of 2013.
