John Kerry says he and Karzai are ‘on the same page’

KABUL (AP) — US Secretary of State John Kerry and Afghan President Hamid Karzai made a show of rare, recent unity between their two nations on Monday, as the US military ceded control of its last detention facility in Afghanistan, ending a longstanding irritant in relations.

Kerry arrived in the Afghan capital of Kabul on an unannounced visit amid concerns that Karzai may be jeopardizing progress in the war against extremism with anti-American rhetoric. After a private meeting, Kerry said he and Karzai were ‘‘on the same page’’ on security and reconciliation issues and brushed aside suggestions that relations were in peril.
