The terrorists continue to work against our peace objectives on both sides of the border. These acts of terror prove that they continue to pose a risk to the region’s security and stability. The U.S., Afghanistan and Pakistan share a common stance against terrorism, and it is simply imperative for us to combine our strength against those wish to plague the region with their acts of terror. We must let these terrorists know that we will not let them succeed in their terrorist activities. At the end of the day, we cannot have a safe and secure region without a safe and secure Afghanistan and Pakistan. Therefore, our leaders are meeting regularly to address our common concerns. We certainly look forward to working closely, and remain fully confident in our abilities to negate the threat of terrorism through shared cooperation.
