KABUL (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he and Afghan President Hamid Karzai are "on the same page" when it comes to peace talks with the Taliban.

Kerry spoke after meeting in Kabul with Karzai during an unannounced trip to the country. At a news conference, he praised what he said was Afghanistan's commitment to "safe, secure" and transparent elections, scheduled for April 2014.

Karzai had infuriated U.S. officials by accusing Washington of colluding with Taliban insurgents to keep Afghanistan weak even as the Obama administration presses ahead with plans to hand off security responsibility to Afghan forces and end NATO's combat mission by the end of next year.
