Ambassador CunninghamThe US ambassador to Afghanistan, James B. Cunningham is expected to sign the bilateral security agreement between Kabul and Washington.

According to the US officials, the long-awaited security pact will be signed on Tuesday, a day after the presidential inauguration.

While it was not clear if the agreement will be signed by President Ashraf Ghani, reports suggest that the pact will be signed by the former interior minister Hanif Atmar.

According to reports, Atmar was appointed as the national security adviser by President Ghani.

The bilateral security agreement, once signed will allow the US troops to remain in Afghanistan beyond 2014. The signing of the pact will also pave the way for the conclusion of a similar agreement between the Afghan government and NATO.

The agreement with NATO – Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) will allow the NATO to implement the new mission by the alliance support, train and advise Afghan national security forces.
