Senior U.S. and Soviet officials meeting to discuss the conflict in Afghanistan held businesslike talks in Moscow and completed their agenda a day early, U.S. Embassy officials said.

The one-day meeting, originally scheduled for two, was the latest in a series aimed at laying the groundwork for a superpower summit later this year.
