The country’s president said continuous discussions have been followed for one year between Afghan and US related to issues of the security pact” Afghanistan’s key points in the pact are the respect to Afghanistan‘s sovereignty, respect to any Afghan house’s safety, prevention of attacks launched by foreign forces and describing the invasion term,” Hamid Karzai said.

“When US forces stay here, they will help Afghanistan in which conditions, invasion will be called as invasion.

Do they call coming of foreign tanks and airplanes as invasion or do they call the terrorism, suicide attacks and war in Afghanistan as invasion?  We’ve gotten clear statements from US side and such issues are in serious discussions between US and Afghanistan,” the President added.

The country’s president said Afghanistan had seriously discussed with USA related to another key issue which is foreign forces’ judicial immunity in the country.
