Pak­ista­nis to train some afghan of­fi­cers

Austin American-Statesman - - THURSDAY BRIEFING -

Afghan Pres­i­dent Hamid Karzai has agreed to send a group of his mil­i­tary of­fi­cers to Pak­istan for train­ing, a sig­nif­i­cant pol­icy shift that Afghan and Pak­istani of­fi­cials said sig­nals deep­en­ing re­la­tions be­tween the long­wary neigh­bors. The move — which U.S. mil­i­tary of­fi­cials said they didn’t know about — is a vic­tory for Pak­istan, which seeks a ma­jor role in Afghanistan as of­fi­cials in both coun­tries be­come con­vinced that the U.S. war ef­fort is fal­ter­ing.
