Islamabad, Aug 6 (Xinhua) Pakistan’s Senate Wednesday adopted a unanimous resolution regretting the accusations against Islamabad by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, according to local media. “The Senate of Pakistan expresses deep regret over recent threatening statements by the Afghan president,” said the resolution.
