KABUL, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Afghan and U.S. officials have held meeting on establishing long-term strategic relationship, Afghan President Hamid Karzai's chief spokesman Waheed Omar said on Monday.

"A high-ranking delegation of U.S. government is currenlty in Kabul and discussing with Afghan officials on establishing strategic relationship," Omar told a regular weekly press briefing.

He said the U.S. government proposed the documents on strategic relationship be finalized by the end of May.

However, he said Afghan government had set no timetable for the agreement.

The spokesman described the proposed strategic relations with the U.S. as very sensitive and important for war-torn Afghanistan.

The U.S. troops are set to start gradual withdrawal from Afghanistan in July this year after invasion in the country to topple Taliban regime in late 2001.
