LONDON - Afghan President Hamid Karzai and British Prime Minister David Cameron meet on Saturday to sign a partnership agreement setting out how the two countries will work together after British combat troops leave Afghanistan in 2014.

Karzai had been due to visit Britain last month, immediately after the Bonn conference on the future of Afghanistan, but canceled the trip to return home after scores of people were killed in a wave of sectarian bomb attacks.

Karzai and Cameron are expected to discuss the security situation in Afghanistan, political reform and what support the rest of the world can provide to Afghanistan after 2014.

Western countries plan to remove most combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, handing over security to expanded Afghan security forces.
