Karzai, Aziz Discuss Pakistan's Anti-Terror Plan

Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz meets in Kabul with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in an attempt to ease growing tensions between their two countries over how they fight terrorism.

The two leaders held the hastily-arranged talks after tensions flared over Pakistan's plans to mine and fence part of its long border with Afghanistan.

Remarks at a joint press conference after the meeting suggested that the talks failed to make any headway. Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the gap between the two sides is widening.
