KABUL: Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, on Saturday, said the war against terrorism cannot be won without Pakistan's support and that Afghanistan and Pakistan have to enhance coordination in the fight against terrorism.

Gilani reached Kabul on a two day visit to Afghanistan Saturday morning and held a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Addressing a joint press conference after the meeting, Gilani said that Pakistan has paid a heavy price in the war against terrorism but is nonetheless determined to help Afghanistan to establish peace in the region.

Meanwhile, Karzia said Pakistan has been a gracious host for the Afghan refugees. He expressed hopes of Pakistan's cooperation with Afghanistan to achieve a better future.

G.Khan | 10 years ago | Reply @ Vasan Have you fixed your own house? I don't see it fixed. I can see increasing terrorism by naxalites within and opening a Red Corridor. when you are going to fix that ? I don't see you have cleaned up the sources yet. when you are going to do that? I had not mentioned Kashmir but since you have mentioned so you answer that too. I will pass it for now. Now what kind of a screwed up logic is this that ? Quote " Nobody, nobody denies the most idiotic war in Iraq and Afganistan, The comments are about terrorist attacks in Pakistan and India. By the way what has India to do with the Afghan and Iraq wars". If Afghan war is Idiotic then Invaders and Occupiers are TERRORIST? Do you Agree? Beacuse illegal occupation is State Terrorism. Do your Logic understand that simple thing? If not Debate is over. Because then I will send you to read UN charter which supports my position and By the way on which Your country also signed. Having identified the real terrorists, now we can understand better what is happening in Pakistan and India. Nothing was happening before 2001 precisely. Therefore it has to do something with this invasion and act of terrorism. Afghanistan and Pakistan are the direct victims. Can not India be indirect victim? Can it be a possibility? Let's stick to the point. Looking for scapegoats when US has lost the Afghan war is a very easy job. Because it takes guts to accept one's own failure. As I said If we accept the simple argument that Invaders and occupiers are the Terrorists then nothing needs more explaination as to against who is this war on terror is being fought. It is being fought against those who invaded Afghanistan( US ARMY) and those who are fighting against them are the Afghans themselves and US call them terrorists. Pakistan has nothing to do with Invasion or Afghan resistance. But it is absorbing the shock waves from this whole chaos including refugees.
