Lahore, Sep.25 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has said that if the US pulls out from Afghanistan then it would create more problems for both Pakistan and India.

In an interview to ABC News, Musharraf said in case the US decides to call off its 'war on terror' in Afghanistan, the Al-Qaeda would then create great problems for the region.

"The country (Afghanistan) will become the centre of all Al Qaeda sanctuaries and consequently could extend its influence into Pakistan and possibly even India," Musharraf said.

Responding to a question regarding the Obama Administration's decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, Musharraf said the White House should have done it earlier, but underlined the fact that the US should also be prepared for more casualties in the struggle.

"I think you should take it immediately. You should have taken it yesterday.We must avoid casualties, as much as possible. But when soldiers move and armies act, casualties will be there, and we should accept casualties," The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying.

He said that the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan should be mined so that extremists can't go across. (ANI)
