Washington, Apr.7 (ANI): The May 12 meeting between US President Barack Obama and his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai in Washington could still be cancelled, White House sources said Tuesday.

Obama has asked Karzai to crack down on internal corruption, and according to sources here, his administration is also unhappy with comments attacking the U.S. and its allies.

Over the last several days the White House has maintained that next month's meeting wouldn't be compromised as a result of Karzai's remarks.

However, according to Fox News, in his daily briefing Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs changed his tone. "We certainly would evaluate whatever continued or further remarks President Karzai makes as to whether that's constructive to have such a meeting." (ANI)
