KABUL – Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar June 15 called for a more unified approach toward terrorism in Afghanistan.

"We have been making the claim that we need to all work together to ensure that we win against them rather than they win against us," she told reporters. "If there is a policy of divide and rule, they are doing a great job at it and we are doing a terrible job at combining our energy, our forces, our resources to be able to face them as one."

Khar made the remarks on the sidelines of a ministerial conference in Kabul aimed at building greater regional co-operation on Afghanistan and its future following the pull out of NATO forces in 2014.

Peace depends on regional co-operation to smash sanctuaries for militant networks waging violence in Afghanistan, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said. In his opening remarks to the conference, he urged Pakistan to support the peace process.
