Karzai calls for combating terror, extremism

Sep 14, 2011 - 16:26

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai underlined on Wednesday the need for combating the twin scourge of terrorism and extremism, which have created serious problems for the region.

"We realise that a peaceful Pakistaninfo-icon is in interest of the entire region," Karzai said during a meeting with visiting Indian Foreign Secretary Shri Ranjan Mathai at the Presidential Palace in Kabul.

Greater cooperation between Afghanistaninfo-icon and India also figured at the meeting, which was also by the president's national security advisor, Rangin Dadfar Spanta, and Deputy Foreign Minister Javed Ludin.

The participants also discussed the situation in the region and ways of expanding public services, according to a statement from Karzai's office.

Karzai called the Indian civil services sector a good model for Afghanistan and suggested a delegation of Afghan experts should minutely study that system.

The Afghan government was working on a programme to depoliticise public services and focus them on serving the ordinary people, the statement quoted the president as saying. Afghanistan also planned to introduce laws requiring civil servants to qualify a competitive examination, he added.

The foreign secretary welcomed Afghan experts to India to study its civil service structure. He promised India would provide all possible facilities to the experts.

Cooperation between India and Afghanistan is aimed at economic development of the landlocked country, Mathai said.
