Karachi, Jan. 13 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the war on terror being fought in the neighbouring Afghanistan could spill over into Pakistan.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the meeting of Special Representatives for Afghanistan and Pakistan held in Abu Dhabi, Qureshi said the challenges faced by Pakistan are direct consequences of terrorist activities across the border in Afghanistan.

The Dawn quoted Qureshi as saying that Pakistan paid a heavy price for the war against terror, pointing out that nearly 3,000 people have been killed by extremists since July 2007.

The one-day conference brought together delegations from about 40 countries ahead of a January 28 conference on Afghanistan in London, which will be attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other international leaders.

Qureshi lauded the efforts of the security forces as well as the people of Pakistan for bravely facing terrorism. (ANI)
