Afghan president Hamid Karzai on Monday will attend the Islamic Co-operation Summit and seek support for Afghanistan's peace negotiations, foreign ministry spokesman Janan Musazai said today.
"The people of Afghanistan have made massive sacrifices for democracy and stability; so we hope the Islamic countries will support Afghanistan's peace process," Mr Musazai said at a press conference in Kabul.
He also emphasized that Pakistani officials should take the region's insurgency seriously and work to quell it.
Pakistan and Isaf recently agreed to conduct a sweeping military operation in Pakistan's border areas targeting terrorist hideouts. Isaf will provide Pakistan's army with intelligence and technical support, and will prevent the infiltration of insurgents onto Afghan soil.
