President Hamid Karzai believes replacing the embattled US commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan "would not be helpful" for peace and stability in the country, his spokesman told reporters on Wednesday.

"The president believes that we're in a sensitive juncture in our partnership, in our war on terror, in process of bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan and that any gap in this process will not be helpful," Karzai's spokesman Waheed Omar told reporters.

Karzai also expressed his "confidence" in US General Stanley McChrystal during a pre-planned Tuesday video conference call with US President Barack Obama, the spokesman added.
