Cheney met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and afterward they delivered remarks and answered questions before reporters.
The visit to Afghanistan - which a U.S. Embassy source says will be "very brief" - is Cheney's latest stop in his trip overseas, which began Sunday. He visited Iraq earlier this week.
