Afghan President Hamid Karzai has met with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Pakistani Prime Minister Ashraf in Kabul.

Thursday's disscusions were held over how to stop fighters from spilling across the Afghan-Pakistan border, and how to advance a peace deal to end Afghanistan's insurgency.

The Kabul talks marked the end of Cameron's two-day visit to Afghanistan, intended to guide decisions on how fast Britain will withdraw its 9,500 troops before international forces leave by the end of 2014.

Ahead of the talks with Pakistan, Cameron and Karzai signed an agreement for 90 British military officials to staff an Afghan army officer training academy to be opened near Kabul.

Cameron also met with the top US commander in Afganistan, John Allen, who gave him a positive message on the country's overall security picture as they discussed recent violence in northeastern Afghanistan.
