Official: Talks on strategic pact moving in right direction (Video)By Ataullah Khpelwak Feb 20, 2012 - 12:19
KABUL (PAN): Negotiations over a strategic cooperation agreement with the United States are going in the right direction, a foreign ministry official said on Sunday, days after the talks resumed.
“A fresh round of talks will take place in Kabul,” foreign ministry spokesman, Janan Musazai, told a news conference. “The quality and content of agreement are more important to us than the early signing of the pact.”
The negotiations have been positive so far, according to the spokesman, who said media representatives would be informed as and when a new development took place with regard to the agreement.
A four-day traditional Loya Jirga on the strategic cooperation pact with the US in November last year issued a 76-article declaration, giving a green signal to the creation of American bases in the country for a decade.
