ISLAMABAD - Pakistan and Afghanistan on Friday resolved to increased cooperation in the fight against terrorism while declaring the menace as a serious threat to regional peace and stability. The neighbouring states also reiterated full support to the 'jirga process' launched by them in 2007 to reach out to 'moderate' elements in the ranks of Taliban and resolve the issue of militancy through dialogue and development. Rangin Dadfar Spanta, Foreign Minister of Afghanistan, who visited Islamabad to discuss Pak-Afghan bilateral relations and international issues called on President Asif Ali Zardari. The President expressed gratitude to the Afghan government for extending warm and traditional hospitality during his visit to Kabul earlier this month, said the Foreign Office spokesman, Muhammad Sadiq while giving the details of meeting. President Zardari said he was looking forward to welcome President Karzai to Pakistan. The President said the Joint Declaration on Directions of Bilateral Cooperation signed during his last visit to Kabul provided the framework for conduct of bilateral relations in future. "The two sides will adhere to it for promotion of bilateral relations," the President said. Another official privy to meeting said on condition of anonymity that the President told the Afghan Foreign Minister that no one would be allowed to use soil of Pakistan for subversive acts against Afghanistan. The President said that those involved in terrorism would not be allowed to impose their will and agenda on others, according to the official. According to spokesman, Foreign Minister Spanta also held a detailed meeting with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi at the Foreign Office. The two Foreign Ministers expressed satisfaction on the ongoing multi-track bilateral cooperation and expressed readiness to strengthen this cooperation both at strategic and tactical levels. Foreign Minister Qureshi expressed the hope that Obama Administration would adopt a comprehensive and holistic approach in addressing the challenge of terrorism in the region. He also hoped that the military surge in Afghanistan would be coupled with political and development surge. Foreign Minister Qureshi said Pakistan welcomed the introduction of a moral dimension in US approach to the foreign policy in general and campaign against terrorism in particular. Foreign Minister Qureshi said it was now universally accepted that the use of force alone would not address the challenge of terrorism. "Dialogue with moderate forces and engagement with reconcilable elements is important in controlling the spread of extremism and militancy," he said. The two Foreign Ministers welcomed the appointment of Ambassador Richard Holbrooke as US Special Envoy to the region and hoped that he would comprehensively focus on addressing the menace of extremism and terrorism. The two sides also reiterated to extend full support to Jirga process to pursue the dual objectives of dialogue and development. They also agreed that closer bilateral cooperation was necessary to control the two-way movement of militants and miscreants on Pakistan-Afghanistan border. PPI adds: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Friday said there was "no more confrontation" between Pakistan and Afghanistan after talks with his visiting Afghan counterpart Rangeen Dadfar Spanta. "We had fruitful and constructive talks. The good thing was that there is a radical change in Afghan government's thinking as there is no more confrontation and criticism. Today we have atmosphere of friendship," Qureshi told newsmen later.
