By Super Admin

Islamabad, Mar. 15 (ANI): Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has called for a "common strategy" against terrorism for Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Karzai expressed these views during his telephone conversation with Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.

He also expressed grief over the loss of innocent lives in the recent terrorist attacks in Lahore and Mingora, the Daily Times reports.

According to a press release issued by Prime Minister's office, Karzai told Gilani that the circumstances in neighbouring countries were 'so similar' that an act of violence in one country is followed by an act of violence in the other.

He was referring to the recent terror attack in Kandahar.

Karzai said that both countries needed to coordinate efforts in order to strengthen cooperation against terrorism and militancy.

Separately, Karzai telephoned President Asif Ali Zardari and thanked him for the warm hospitality accorded to him and his delegation during their recent visit to Islamabad.

He said he looked forward to continued mutual cooperation between Pakistan and Afghanistan in all areas. (ANI)
