WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee says he backs continued aid to Afghanistan so long as there is an acceptable security agreement.
Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan made the comments Thursday in a statement issued as he returned from a trip to Afghanistan. Levin met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
Levin says he told Karzai that the U.S. would not be able to provide aid unless an agreement is reached in the near future.
Earlier this month, the U.S. and Karzai reached an agreement in principle on the major elements of a deal that would allow American troops to stay in Afghanistan after 2014. But a deal-breaking issue looms: Who would have jurisdiction over the forces?
