Mr. Karzai told reporters and NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh on Monday that both nations are “burning in the same [terrorist-sponsored] fire” and need to send a united message against acts of terrorism, AP reports.
Mr. Karzai’s accusation ratchets up the political atmosphere between the two countries. The Afghan government already condemned the cleric’s statement, but Mr. Karzai seems to be taking it a step farther, declaring it representative of the entire Pakistani’s government’s views, AP reports.
