    US State Secretary John Kerry announced at a joint press conference with Afghan leaders at Camp David that he will visit Kabul later in 2015 to hold meetings with Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Kerry explained that his meeting with Rabbani will be the first since 2013 on implementing the US-Afghan strategic partnership agreement.

    “Later this year, I will be travelling to Kabul to join Foreign Minister Rabbani in hosting a meeting of the commission [on 2012 Enduring Strategic Partnership Agreement],” Kerry said on Monday.
