Country's grand council in fierce debate over pact

Afghan President Hamid Karzai told a meeting of tribal elders and political leaders on Thursday they should support a security pact with the United States, but he acknowledged there was little trust between the two nations.

Karzai told the Loya Jirga, or grand council, that US President Barack Obama had sent him a letter of assurance that a security pact between the two countries was in Afghanistan's best interest.
