KABUL - Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Thursday he was mulling changes to either the 2014 timetable for national elections or the planned transition of security that year to Afghan forces, to avoid overloading the country with simultaneous change.

"Can we bring either the transition and the return of international forces to 2013 so we can have the other agenda fulfilled in 2014 with less to do, or should we allow the transition process to complete itself in 2014, but bring the presidential election one year earlier to 2013," he told a press conference.

"I have not had a final decision yet and it will not be soon."
