Afghanistan on Wednesday suspended talks with the US on a deal that would allow US troops to remain in the country after 2014, officials said, in a clash over proposed talks with the Taliban.

"There is a contradiction between what the US government says and what it does regarding Afghanistan peace talks," Aimal Faizi, President Hamid Karzai's spokesman, told AFP.

"The president suspended the BSA (Bilateral Security Agreement) talks with the US this morning."
