Evan Vucci/Associated Press – President Barack Obama gestures as he speaks during a dinner in honor of the Presidential Medal of Freedom awardees at the Smithsonian Museum of American History on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013 in Washington.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, in a letter sent Wednesday to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, said the U.S. will continue to respect “Afghan sovereignty” under a new security agreement.

Obama also said the U.S. military will not conduct raids on Afghan homes except under “extraordinary circumstances” involving urgent risks to U.S. nationals. The raids have been a particularly sensitive issue to the Afghans.
