Afghan candidates agree resolution

Afghanistan’s feuding presidential candidates have agreed to resolve their election dispute and say they will set the inauguration before the end of August.

The breakthrough comes as US Secretary of State John Kerry opened a second day of talks in Afghanistan aimed at preventing the fragile country from collapsing into political chaos after disputed elections.

Mr Kerry paid a courtesy call on Afghan president Hamid Karzai and met later with the two candidates, former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah and ex-finance minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai. They have been locked in a bitter dispute over who will succeed Mr Karzai.
