No nation can win ‘war on terror’ sans Pak support: Gilani

Sunday, December 5, 2010

KABUL - No country can win the war against terrorism without Pakistan’s help, Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has said.

Addressing a joint press conference after holding bilateral talks with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Gilani said that seeing the prevailing scenario with regard to the global war being fought on terrorism, it is impossible for any country to nip this menace in the bud without support of Pakistan, a frontline ally of the United States on the cause, Geo News reported.

“Now there is an equal realization that both the countries are equally suffering because of terrorism and there should be no blame game,” he said, referring to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Gilani and Karzai first met separately, followed by the delegation level talks and in-depth discussions aimed at enhancing cooperation in the war against terrorism and extremism, and promoting collaboration on economy, trade and investment, building of energy corridors and improving road and rail links.

The two leaders exchanged views on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.
