Afghan talks: Nato urges Pakistan to fight militants

Wednesday, 24 April 2013 - 8:05


Nato chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen has called on Pakistan to combat militants who use the country as a launch-pad for attacks on neighbouring Afghanistan.


He was speaking alongside Afghan President Hamid Karzai on the eve of US-led talks aimed at soothing tensions between Afghanistan and Pakistan.


Nato is set to end its years-long combat mission in Afghanistan before the end of next year.


Karzai said he was looking forward to Nato's continued support.
