SHOTLIST:AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLYKabul, Afghanistan - 2 January 20141.SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen. John McCain, (R-Ariz.)"This agreement is vital for the future of Afghanistan and security here in Afghanistan and in the region. We have our differences and we discussed many of those differences with President Karzai. But I believe that those differences have been narrowed and I believe that issues such as the treatment of prisoners at Bagram, such as the peace process and others that we discussed can be resolved. It is very important that we sign this agreement sooner rather that later, because Congress has to act to appropriate money and to authorize military activities."++NOTE: SOUNDBITES SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen. John McCain, (R-Ariz.)"We cannot see a repeat of Iraq. We have got to do everything that we can in order to see that this BSA (Bilateral Security Agreement) is signed. But at the same time we have explained to our Afghan friends that unless we resolve these differences, the United States of America has no choice but to not continue with its commitments, something we don't want to do, but it is something that can't be totally ruled out." STORYLINE:A group of visiting US senators said on Thursday they had warned Afghan President Hamid Karzai that a failure to sign a key Afghan-US security deal would pose a threat to the country and the region.Following a meeting with Karzai, Republican Senator John McCain said some of the differences between the two countries had been narrowed and could be resolved in a few days or weeks."We cannot see a repeat of Iraq. We have got to do everything that we can in order to see that this BSA (Bilateral Security Agreement) is signed," McCain told journalists gathered at a news conference in Kabul.Karzai has delayed signing the accord with the United States, which US officials have said could result in a total withdrawal of US and allied forces by the end of this year.Republicans John Barrasso of Wyoming and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also met with Karzai. Without a signed deal, all US and NATO forces would have to withdraw from Afghanistan.
