Karzai, Grossman agree on greater coordination

Karzai, Grossman agree on greater coordination

Mar 02, 2011 - 15:05

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai has hoped the newly-appointed US special envoy for Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon will contribute to the expansion of cooperation among the three countries, his office said on Wednesday.

At their maiden meeting in London on Tuesday, Karzai congratulated Marc Grossman on assuming the job and wished him success in his new position, the Presidential Palace in Kabul said in a statement.

The three allies would succeed in coping with the challenges posed by terrorism in the region, the president said. "Only through trilateral cooperation, we can succeed in eliminating terrorist sanctuaries across the border."

He would do his best to boost relations and coordination among the three countries, promised Grossman, who was appointed to the post in mid-February after Richard Holbrooke's death.

In his three decades as a diplomat, Grossman served as ambassador to Turkey from 1994 to 1997, assistant secretary of state for European affairs and under secretary of state for political affairs between 2001 and 2005.
