Kabul (BNA) President Karzai told the national Radio-TV, Shamshad, Ariana and Kabul News in an interview that he hopes Pakistan pursue an independent policy towards Afghanistan and it should not look in its policy from the viewpoints of India and the US in its ties with Afghanistan. He added that the Pakistani government regrettably after killing of its soldiers by the NATO and US forces which we also regret, boycotted participation at the international Bonn Conference, while they knew that Afghanistan is not involved in this issue and has no fault any way. Recalling good relations between Afghanistan, Pakistan and the US in the past, he pointed out that during the Jehad and after that when the US was friendly with them, Pakistan in order to achieve the US and the West’s aims in Afghanistan was very active, extremism was getting strengthened there, and any ugly element were strengthened in Afghanistan and the Afghan national were suffering immensely. After the 11th of September once again Pakistan was united with the US and the US toppled the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. President Karzai added that Pakistan give base and place for the US and the US came to Afghanistan though Pakistan and for the past ten years the US and Pakistan retained cooperation between them and the US provided $2 billion annually to Pakistan, but Pakistan’s cooperation could not prove effective in elimination of terror and insurgency in Afghanistan, but with each passing day it was further intensified and Afghanistan never complained to Pakistan for Pakistan was getting money from the US, as to whether it is friend with the US or oppose it. He stressed that Afghanistan had independent policy towards Pakistan and we continue this and we used to encourage independence policy of a neighbor with the other and attach great value to it and we will continue this as well. It is our desire that Pakistan approach towards on its interest towards Afghanistan from the view points of her neighbor and be in contact with it. This is not possible that Pakistanis deal with as in connection with our friendship in opposition with India and or in our friendship and opposition with the US. This is our expectations that Pakistan be in contact with us from its own interests and that of the region and its neighborliness with Afghanistan.
