Karzai’s Office Rejects Receiving Proposal from Pakistan

KABUL - President Karzai's Office on Monday denied having received a proposal from Pakistan consisted of Pakistani government demands.
At a press conference President Hamid Karzai's Spokesperson Waheed Omar called the reports claiming Pakistan submitting a proposal to Afghanistan inaccurate.

Mr Omar told reporters that Pakistan had not offered any specific petition regarding domestic issues of Afghanistan.
After Pakistan's Premier Yusuf Raza Gilani visited Kabul, there were rumours suggesting he submitted a paper to Karzai's Office consisted of demands that could bring Afghan sovereignty under question.

Unprecedented issues were discussed during Pakistani Prime Minister's visit to Kabul which is welcomed by the Afghan government, Mr Omar said.
Pakistan's cooperation in Afghan peace talks and boosting the understanding of joint fight against insurgents in Pakistan were the pivotal topics discussed during the visit.

"We hope that Pakistan takes some practical steps about peace and stability in the region," Mr Omar said. "Pakistan has not submitted any suggestion related to Afghan domestic issues and it won't be accepted if it ever suggests."
Things discussed between Kabul and Islamabad will also be discussed with the United States, Mr Omar said.

Long term strategic partnership agreement between Afghanistan and the US beyond 2014 has turned into a dominant discourse nowadays.
Mr Omar said national interests, regional concerns and establishment of a long-term relation with the US and Western nations will be considered in the US-Afghan strategic agreement. (Tolo News)
