RAWALPINDI: Pakistan and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) based in Afghanistan, built on the positive momentum on cross-border cooperation, a release said on Friday.

In a joint statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relation (ISPR) on the meeting between Commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) General John Allen and Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani earlier in the week, said all sides further discussed the mutual progress made to eliminate terrorism, combat extremism and ensuring that the territory of both Pakistan and Afghanistan are not used as safe havens to launch cross-border attacks.

The commanders also discussed current operational realities.

"This visit helped advance our efforts to achieve the regional stability. Additionally, the meeting provided us perfect opportunity to refocus our attention on our continuing efforts to eliminate the corrosive effects of extremists operating on both sides of the border" Allen was quoted as saying in the release.

Allen had traveled to Islamabad on June 27, 2012 in the backdrop to a deadly cross-border raid by over 100 Taliban militants, attacking a Pakistani patrol. The military claimed that at least 14 militants were killed in the attack, but lost 14 soldiers, who were abducted and later killed.

Always $$$$$$$$$$ do have much more attractions and magnetic powers for/in the eyes of Pakistani corrupt,beggars,slaves and conscienceless leaders rather than humanity,honor,grace,dignity,self-respect,sovereignty and self-reliance.This is why this is going to happened sooner or later.

Hedgefunder | 9 years ago | Reply @ParvezM: Putin trip is only for show and perhaps few million $$$ for power project etc... nothing major, as he too has enough on his plate at present ! The Russians really are not that important anymore, and the Chinese are going to take a back seat as they are well aware of problems arising from Pakistan too, in regards to the Saudis ! well kiss goodbye to those brothers too !! So US and NATO will decide as to the course of actions in future, not Pakistan !
