Kerry arrives in Kabul to push deal between presidential candidates

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Afghanistan on Thursday, Aug 7, for his second visit in under a month to push a deal between the country's two presidential candidates on how to share power after an audit of a disputed election is complete, Reuters reports.

Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah shook hands on an agreement to resolve the election row after Kerry's visit in July, but they remain far apart on critical components of their pact to form a united government.
