Afghanistan's president says disagreements over issues such as sovereignty are still impeding a security deal with the United States.
It is doubtful a deal will be complete by that time.
The deal will give the U.S. a legal basis for having military forces in Afghanistan after 2014. If there is no deal, there will be no U.S. forces in Afghanistan after that time.
Karzai, who spoke to reporters on Monday, also condemned what he described as repeated violations of Afghan sovereignty by the U.S. and allies.
