Karzai says, Afghanistan will target Taliban

By Super Admin

Islamabad, May 14 (ANI): Afghan President Hamid Karzai has announced plans to launch a military offensive against the Taliban to flush out militants from its side of the border with Pakistan.

Karzai's declaration comes after conducting bilateral talks with Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, who had made a similar announcement on May 7.

Currently, the Pakistani military is engaged in a fight with the Taliban in Pakistan's northwestern region, which borders with Afghanistan.

Karzai said Afghanistan supported Pakistan's efforts to combat terrorism.

During the meeting, both leaders expressed the resolve to eliminate the threat of militants from both sides of their shared border, the Daily Times reports.

Karzai agreed with Gilani that drone attacks hurt the government's strategy to isolate the Taliban from the tribesmen. (ANI)
