Kabul, Dec 27(ANI): Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has urged Islamabad to "spare no effort in eliminating" those responsible for the suicide attack on a World Food Programme (WFP) depot in Pakistan, which killed 46 people and wounded 80 others.
"I strongly condemn this attack and I ask the Pakistani government to spare no efforts in eliminating these terrorists," the Daily Times quoted Karzai, as saying in a statement released by his spokesman's office.
"The terrorist attack once again reveals the true face of those who have no other motive, but shedding blood and causing terror," he added.

The President also "emphasised strengthening joint efforts with Pakistan in the war against terrorism," the statement said.
