KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The US Special Envoy to Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon, Mark Grossman, said on Saturday that his government would continue its pressure on Pakistan to fight the terrorism.

President Karzai has taken a tough stance against Pakistan after Ex-president and High Peace Councilinfo-icon 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.
