Karzai suggests West not acting over Pakistan Taliban

The Afghan President Hamid Karzai has suggested that Western allies are unwilling to move against the Pakistan Taliban.

He urged the US-led allies to take stronger action against what he called terrorist sanctuaries beyond his borders.

In a clear reference to the Taliban and to Pakistan, Mr Karzai said his government was working to prevent nations from training and protecting terrorists beyond his country. But he said that only the international community was capable of actually doing something about them.

He also condemned the recent leak of US military documents.
