KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Afghanistan's president says he has told the U.S. national security adviser that he won't back down from his refusal to sign a security agreement with the United States but will instead defer it to his successor.

A statement issued by the office of Hamid Karzai late Monday said that in a meeting with Susan Rice, he also asked for further assurances from the United States that its forces will not raid Afghan homes and that they express a sincere commitment to help start stalled peace talks with the Taliban.

He also reiterated his demand that the United States commit to holding free and transparent elections on April 5.
