Karzai to visit Pakistan Monday

Aug 25 2013, 6:30am CDT | by IANS

Islamabad, Aug 25 (IANS) Afghan President Hamid Karzai will pay a day's visit to Pakistan Monday at the invitation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for talks on bilateral relations and regional security.

Islamabad, Aug 25 — Afghan President Hamid Karzai will pay a day's visit to Pakistan Monday at the invitation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for talks on bilateral relations and regional security.

The Pakistan foreign ministry said Sunday that the Afghan president will be accompanied by a high-level delegation including cabinet ministers and senior officials, reports Xinhua.

This will be the first highest-level meeting between Pakistan and Afghanistan since the swearing-in of the new Pakistani government in June.

"President Karzai's visit will carry forward this process of constructive engagement between the two countries," the foreign ministry said.

"The two leaders will have in-depth consultations on all issues of common interest, including the evolving situation in the region as well as ways to deepen and broaden Pakistan-Afghanistan bilateral relations."

It said Karzai's visit comes at a time when Afghanistan is undergoing important political and security transitions and the withdrawal of the NATO forces is due to be completed by December 2014.

The ministry said Karzai's visit will impart a strong impetus to ongoing efforts for an enhanced relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan and enable the leadership on both sides to further strengthen their joint endeavours in the pursuit of durable peace, stability and prosperity.

Sharif had sent his Adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz last month to discuss the agenda of Karzai's visit to make the talks useful.

The foreign ministry said substantive talks were held on the Afghan peace process and bilateral relations.

It said peace and stability in Afghanistan were in Pakistan's vital interest and that Islamabad had extended consistent support for the promotion of peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.

"Pakistan remains committed to working with Afghanistan as well as regional and international partners for sustainable peace and development," it said.

Laughing From his Grave

Aug 9 2014 10:10am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Nearly 12 years ago, the United States Congress, representing the American people, provided President George W. Bush with the authorization to invade Iraq. Friday, seemingly under this same authorization, American bombs fell again on Iraq. This is not, however, the Bush Whitehouse. After coming into office and adopting a proto-Bush approach to foreign policy by escalating the war in Afghanistan, participating in Libya ...

Lousy Scenarios, Limited Options: It Mostly Just Gets Worse for Obama

Jul 14 2014 4:47pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Remember those halcyon days of yore, also known as last year, when President Barack Obama's frequently challenged job approval rating was always buttressed by his ratings on foreign policy and geopolitics? Those days of yore are certainly no more, with the global portion of the president's portfolio now dragging down his overall rating, as you see in these recent polls. Now new crises centering around Iraq, Israel, Afghanistan, and Germany threaten to depress Obama's alread ...
