WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai agreed on Wednesday to press forward with a US-Afghan security pact, the White House said, despite the curtailment of NATO operations in response to a surge in "insider" attacks on foreign servicemen.

"The two presidents discussed a range of issues, including efforts to stem insider attacks on US, coalition, and Afghan forces," the White House said in a statement summarizing a video conference call between the two leaders.

They also agreed to continue implementation of a Strategic Partnership agreement signed in May during Obama's visit to Afghanistan, the White House said.
