Fears mount over security in Afghanistan

MOSSA: Marie, how important is the Bilateral Security Agreement to ongoing cooperation between Afghanistan and the United States?

SHABAYA: Well, the position of the American government is very clear: if the deal is not signed at the end of the year all foreign troops stationed in Afghanistan will have to leave.
