McChrystal discusses Pak-Afghan border with Kayani
RAWALPINDI: Ahead of the massive US military offensive in Afghan province of Helmand, Pakistan’s top military leadership made it clear that all US actions should remain on the Afghan side of the border and intelligence information should be shared with Pakistani security forces.
Talking to US National Security Advisor James Jones and ISAF Commander in Kabul General Stanley A. McChrystal separately at GHQ in Rawalpindi, General Kayani said sacrifices rendered by Pakistani security forces are much higher than what the coalition forces suffered in Afghanistan.
Kayani briefed the defence officials about progress in the South Waziristan operation and asked for an increase in check posts on other side of the border for strict vigilance on the movement of militants.
Both top defence officials lauded role of Pakistani security forces in the fight against terrorism.
