Karzai at Kabul Conference: Security handover by 2014

Afghanistan is "determined" to be responsible for its own security operations by 2014, President Hamid Karzai told an international donors conference in Kabul Tuesday.

Karzai said that Afghanistan will work with NATO and other nations on a transition for security by that date.
