In an interview to Chicago Tribune, Karzai said that both the governments were committed to work against terrorism.
Afghanistan and Pakistan have been working in collaboration to confiscate terror sanctuaries but they would have to go a long way to completely remove them, he added.
Seeming confident over the Pakistan Presidents support he said, Zardaris intentions were right but as for his ability that is something we must all help around.
After being asked if Pakistan was serious about the war on terrorism, he said, The President is, no doubt, theres no doubt about that. And I hope he and his government will succeed in this regard … I have full trust in him and his intentions. He has personally suffered a colossal loss at the hands of terrorism, so I am sure he will do the right thing.
While speaking on the status of negotiations with the Taliban, Karzai said, Id like to negotiate with them very much. And Ive had an opinion on this from the very first day.”
But I dont have an address for them. I dont know where to find them. You can find the Pakistani Taliban… but I dont know where to find the Afghan Taliban. I try to find them, I keep sending them messages, I dont know their address. That is another big problem. The Afghan Taliban not having an address, he added.
The Afghan President expressed unhappiness over the international communitys ignorance over the innocent killings in Afghanistans villages in the name of Taliban. (ANI)
