The proposed U.S.-Afghan Strategic partnership draft has been presented to Washington, a statement released by Presidential Palace here on Sunday said. "The U.S.-Afghanistan Strategic Partnership draft has been presented to United States," the statement added.

The statement also added in the meeting of National Security Council with President Hamid Karzai on the chair, held Sunday the security situation of the country and transferring security responsibility from over 140,000-strong NATO-led troops to Afghan forces was also discussed.

Security transition process from NATO-led troops to Afghan side is going to begin from July this year and would be completed by the end of 2014.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai said last month that having strategic partnership with Washington requires the approval of Afghan traditional Loya Jirga or grand assembly of elders and tribal chieftains and Afghan parliament.
