September 6, 2006 -- Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai today for talks on fighting cross-border terrorism.
After talks in Kabul, Musharraf said Pakistan and Afghanistan need to work together on fighting "the scourge of terrorism and extremism" facing their countries.
He said Pakistan and Afghanistan share a "common enemy" in the triple threat of the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, and what he called the "Talibanization" of society.
Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants are believed to operate on Pakistan's territory, while Pakistani officials say they believe insurgents in the southwestern Baluchistan Province have received munitions from smugglers in Afghanistan.
The Afghan and Pakistani governments have previously accused each other of not doing enough to secure the Afghan-Pakistani frontier.
