P. Lellouche, French special envoy Afghanistan & Pakistan | May 1, 2009
The global community is slowly realizing the magnitude of the dangers the current problems Pakistan and Afghanistan carry for the world. ++ France has taken an active role, "committed to contributing its full weight to help settle these conflicts." ++ Efforts to stabilize Afghanistan will fail if Pakistan does not participate fully in the fight against terrorism. ++ The solution "cannot be limited to the action of the US alone or even the NATO, but necessitates the active participation of regional major players, beginning with India and China."
