Pakistan wants Afghanistan share intelligence on suspects

IRNA

Islamabad, Nov 17, IRNA - Pakistan on Monday called for coordination 
and intelligence sharing with Afghanistan, saying the two countries 
are allies, friends and neighbors and engaged together in the war on 
terrorism. 
Foreign Office spokesman Masood Khan was commenting on statements 
by Afghan Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah in Washington, that 
Pakistan is allowing Taliban to re-group and supplying them with 
weapons. 
"There are so many problems inside Afghanistan including 
warlordism, factional fighting and narcotics and very weak monitoring 
of Pak-Afghan border from the Afghan side," Spokesman Khan said. 
He said the Afghan Foreign Minister had leveled acquisitions 
against Pakistan in the United States but later moderated his tone 
after his meeting with the US Secretary of State Colin Powell. 
"Pakistan`s actions to check crossing of border illegally from 
Afghanistan have produced results," he said rejecting allegations by 
Kabul that Islamabad was not fully cooperating. 
He said Pakistan has deployed more than seventy thousand troops on
its side of the border and has a very mobile and vigilant 
intelligence.
