Secretary of State John Kerry shook hands with Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the end of their joint news conference.
Kerry made the unannounced visit amid concerns about Karzai's recent anti-American rhetoric.
At a joint news conference after their talks, Karzai told reporters his comments had been misinterpreted by the media.
After a private meeting, Kerry said he and Karzai were ‘‘on the same page’’ on security and reconciliation issues.
Kerry, escorted by Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul, walked the grounds of the Presidential Palace in Kabul.
