U.S. President George W. Bush had telephone discussions with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Tuesday over the regional cooperation against terrorism, the White House said.

The telephone discussions occurred when Musharraf and Karzai completed the Pakistani-Afghan Joint Peace Jirga which was aimed at stopping violence and combating terrorism in tribal areas straddling on the border.

"President Musharraf and President Karzai wanted to share their thoughts about the jirga with the president, that's why the calls were made," White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino said.

"There was an outcome that was constructive from both sides, especially in three areas: Denying terrorists sanctuary and training, promoting peace in the border area and establishing regular follow-up consultations," Periono said.

The grand joint jirga (council meeting of tribal elders) was held in Afghan capital city of Kabul on August 8-12, was joined by a total of nearly 700 tribal elders and officials, 350 from each country.
