Zarqawi's death a severe blow for terrorism: Afghan President
font size    

Afghan President H.E. Hamid Karzai on Thursday called the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the infamous al- Qaida chief in Iraq, a severe blow for terrorism and a major success in the war on international terrorism.

In his reaction to the killing of Zarqawi, Karzai said in a statement that "Zarqawi and his terrorist organization were responsible for the killing of thousands of Muslims in Iraq and in Afghanistan."

"Zarqawi's death is not the end of terrorism in the world, but a significant step in ridding the world of the menace of terrorism. This success should encourage us all, both in the Muslim world and beyond, to continue and step up our common fight against terrorism, " said the president.

Al-Zarqawi, military leader of al-Qaida network in the war-torn Iraq, who got fame for conducting militancy and resisting U.S. occupation of the oil-rich Iraq, was killed in a U.S. air strike Thursday.

Afghanistan's foreign ministry spokesman Nawed Ahmad Moez described the elimination of al-Zarqawi as "a big achievement" in the U.S.-led war on al-Qaida network and lauded it.

"It is a big achievement in the war on terrorism. We believe this could help stabilize peace and security in Iraq," Moez told Xinhua.
