Afghan president: Pakistan's boycott not to stop cooperation


21:55, December 06, 2011

ISLAMABAD, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Afghan President Hamid Karzai said that Pakistan's boycott of the Bonn Conference on the future of Afghanistan will not stop bilateral cooperation, reported local TV channel Geo on Tuesday.

"We very much wished Pakistan to attend Bonn Conference. It would have been a good opportunity for Pakistan to speak its mind, to convey its message to the world honest on conditions and on Afghanistan and how they would like to see things to move forward, but unfortunately they did not come," said President Karzai in an interview with Geo.

Karzai said in the interview that Pakistan's boycott of the Bonn Conference "will not stop us from cooperating, this will not stop us from working together."

He said Afghanistan will continue to engage Pakistan and to work with them and to see the two countries to reach the objective of peace and reconciliation.

Asked if he believes Pakistan can join the Bonn process on Afghanistan, President Karzai said that this process is definitely open to all to join.

Pakistan had boycotted the conference in protest against the Nov. 26 NATO raids on its two border posts which had killed 24 soldiers and injured 13 others.
