Petraeus calls relationship with Karzai sound

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The top US military commander in Afghanistan says the sometimes strained relationship between the US and Afghan President Hamid Karzai is solid.

Gen. David Petraeus (peh-TRAY'-uhs) says Karzai shares US concerns about corruption in his country. Petraeus acknowledged "friction" over the case of a close Karzai aide arrested this summer in a corruption probe. The aide was released after Karzai intervened.

Petraeus says he heard Karzai assure President Barack Obama that he will back the work of US-sponsored anticorruption investigators.
