Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said that both President General Pervez Musharraf, and he knew that al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar were in hiding in Pakistan.

Addressing the US-based Council on Foreign Relations, Karzai said Mullah Omar was for sure in Pakistan.

Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf knows it and I know it . . . He is truly there, The News quoted Karzai as saying.

He said bin Laden was also in Pakistan, but Musharraf would never like to hear the truth.

If I told you he was in Pakistan, President Musharraf, my friend, would be mad at me. But if I said he was in Afghanistan, that would not be true, Karzai said.

Some of these regimes are definitely using extremism as an instrument of policy, and that is why Afghanistan has suffered. Cooperating with terrorists is like trying to train a snake against somebody else. You cannot train a snake. It will come and bite you, Karzai added in a veiled reference to Pakistan.

Of late, Pakistan and Afghanistan have traded charges against each other for not doing enough in the war against terrorism.
