Karzai warns Pak to stop terrorists, suicide bombers from crossing into Afghanistan
Kabul, Oct. 5 (ANI): Expressing his desire to sign a strategic pact with Pakistan, Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai, said it would be possible only if Pakistan stops terrorists and suicide bombers from crossing in to Afghanistan.
"We are happy to have strategic relations with Pakistan. We want this strategic pact with Pakistan. But we want some conditions and preconditions from Pakistan," The Express Tribune quoted Karzai, as saying.
"If these conditions are met - terrorism is stopped, extremism is dismantled, anti-Afghan activities are stopped, destruction of Afghanistan is stopped, friendship starts between the two countries which hasn't happened so far - then a strategic pact would be signed between Afghanistan and Pakistan," he added.
Karzai further criticised the Western media for gloomy predictions about Afghanistan's future once U.S.-led foreign forces withdraw from the war against Taliban insurgents in 2014.
"This is a psychological war by the Western media against Afghanistan: once the foreign troops pull out, Afghanistan will be poor, there will be civil war and the Taliban will return, etc," Karzai said. (ANI)
