Barack Obama, US President, said, "Obviously, there are going to be tensions in such a complicated, difficult environment... and in a situation in which on the ground, both Afghans and Americans are making enormous sacrifices. We've had very frank discussions and President Karzai agrees with me that we can not win through a military strategy alone." Hamid Karzai, Afghan President, said, "Definitely days have come in which we've had a difference of opinion and definitely days in the future will come in which we have differences of opinion.
