WASHINGTON - Afghans were mixed about the importance of having a strong relationship with neighboring Pakistan, results of a Gallup poll released Monday indicated. Thirty-three percent of respondents said a relationship with Pakistan was not very important; 34 percent said it is. During a recent visit to the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai blamed Taliban safe havens in Pakistan for the increase in insurgency. The Pakistani government has begun a military offensive to drive out the Taliban. Afghans also were asked what type of role Pakistan should play in resolving the situation in Afghanistan, the Princeton, New Jersey, polling agency said. Forty-three percent of respondents said Pakistan should play a role in reconstruction, 18 percent said economic development and 14 chose peacekeeping. Results were based on face-to-face interviews with 1,010 adults conducted in December 2008 in Afghanistan. The margin of error is 3.7 percentage points.
