White House hints Karzai visit could be in doubt
Apr 6 02:03 PM US/Eastern
The United States on Tuesday delivered a veiled warning that Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s visit to the White House could be canceled, if he repeats his anti-foreigner outbursts.Karzai is scheduled to meet President Barack Obama on May 12, in a visit scheduled following the US leader’s surprise trip to Afghanistan last month.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs has repeatedly said that the meeting is still on the schedule “as of now” but went further following Karzai’s latest controversial remarks reported in the United States on Monday.

“We certainly would evaluate whatever continued or further remarks President Karzai makes, as to whether it is constructive to have that meeting,” Gibbs said.
