US to press Pakistan for war on terror: Grossman
President Karzai has taken a tough stance against Pakistan after Ex-president and High Peace Council Chairman Burhanuddin Rabbani was assassinated in a suicide attack on his residence in the high-security Wazir Akbar Khan diplomatic district of Kabul on Sept. 20.
Afghan officials alleged that attack on high peace negotiator Rabbani was planned in Pakistan.
Speaking with President Hamid Karzai in a meeting at the Presidential Palace, a statement quoted Grossman as saying: “We better realize your concerns about the recent shocking incidents happened in Afghanistan as well as your stance on bringing peace and stability to the country.”
At the meeting, Karzai said efforts for brining peace and stability should have positive outcome, adding "The Afghans have lost their tolerance toward such attacks and assassinations."
Relations between the US and Pakistan has been worsening since the militant attack on the US embassy and NATO headquarters in Kabul. Washington has increased pressure on Pakistan to move against the Haqqani network based in Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal region.
