Karzai concern on civilian deaths being taken seriously: White House

Karzai concern on civilian deaths being taken seriously: White House

Jun 01, 2011 - 13:11

WASHINGT ON (PANinfo-icon): The Obama administration takes seriously Afghan President Hamid Karzai's warning on civilian casualties in mistaken airstrikes, a White House has spokesman said.

"Our civilian and military leadership in Afghanistaninfo-icon is in regular contact and consultation with the Afghan government and the Afghan security forces," the spokesman said on Tuesday.

Jay Carney told a news conference they took Karzai's concerns about civilian casualties very seriously. "We will work with him as we have throughout this process to take the measures that we can to reduce civilian casualties."

He added Americans were regularly in conversation with the Afghan leader, his government and the security forces there about the mission in that country.

The Obama administration, he reiterated, remained committed to disrupting, dismantling and ultimately defeating Al Qaeda to ensure that Afghanistan would not again become a haven for terrorists.

"What the president has been doing is implementing this policy, obviously with his military and the rest of the administration. Part of that policy was to begin a drawdown in July 2011. That will happen as the policy dictates."
