Gen. Karimi sees Kabul- Islamabad cooperation
About the visit of Gen Raheel Sharif, Pakistani chief of army staff, Karimi said he had informed his hosts about Pakistan’s resolve to fight against all terrorists without any distinction.
Radio Free Afghanistan quoted Karimi as saying: "We agreed that terrorists are merely terrorists, and there is no such thing as good or bad terrorists.
“We talked about showing a joint resolve and joint military operations against terrorists," Karimi added. Kabul and Islamabad exchanged views on coordinating their counterterrorism operations.
He rejected reports that Raheel demanded the handover of Pakistani Taliban leader Maulana Fazlullah believed to be hiding in Afghanistan. "They didn't mention Maulana Fazlullah. He doesn't live in Afghanistan.”
Raheel and Gen. Rizwan Akhtar, chief of Pakistan’s premier Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), visited Kabul after a deadly Taliban attack on a military-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar. Nearly 150 people, including more than 132 schoolchildren, were killed.
