A spokesman for Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Friday rejected a call by the United States to sign a security pact by the end of the year rather than after next year's presidential election. They have set other deadlines also, so this is nothing new to us," said Aimal Faizi, a spokesman for Karzai, as Afghan tribal elders considered the pact for a second day.
