KABUL — Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Tuesday that he was in talks with the United States about the possible establishment of permanent US military bases in his war-ravaged country.
“From the statements made by US officials, US senators to the media and from what they have told us, yes, they have this desire,” he said.
“This is an issue that we’re in talks with them about.”
But Karzai insisted that Afghanistan would have the final say on whether such bases would be allowed.
