Don’t hold your breath, Hamid. “Afghanistan asks Pakistan to do more to hunt Islamic militants,” by Waheedullah Massoud for AP, :
NEW DELHI (AFP) – Afghan President Hamid Karzai asked for greater cooperation from neighboring Pakistan to help fight Islamic militants during his visit to India.
Karzai said his country was the victim of violence by Islamic militants who use safe havens across the border.
“Afghanistan is affected by terrorism, there is violence committed against our people, there is violence committed against our schools, our children … definitely that violence related to cross-border activity,” he told reporters.
The president, however, said he was not accusing Pakistan’s government of having a role in the Taliban-led violence.
“We are not blaming the government of Pakistan. We are seeking help from the government of Pakistan,” Karzai said at a joint press conference with Indian Prime minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi.
