Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has rejected U.S. President Obama's strategy of linking policy on Pakistan and Afghanistan in an effort to end the Taliban insurgency, the local NNI news agency reported Thursday.

Talking to a private TV channel, Zardari said that Pakistan and Afghanistan are two different countries that could not be jointly treated through such policies.

He said that Pakistan has very little time to coup with threats facing to the very existence of the country.

He said that the war against terrorism would be harmed if Pakistan is not provided foreign assistance soon.

"If financial assistance to Pakistan was not dispatched on time then it would compel to do some cutting in development expenditure to fill the losses of terror war," said President Zardari.

The Obama administration unveiled in late March a new strategy on fighting militant groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan, considering the Afghan-Pakistani cooperation crucial to the success of its new policy for the region.

Reports said Zardari' s comments reflect Pakistan's unwillingness to be aligned in the joint policy framework with neighboring Afghanistan, an approach referred to as "Af-Pak."
