Against the backdrop of Mumbai terror attacks, Afghanistan on Monday joined India in demanding that no country should allow terrorism to emanate from its territories, in an apparent reference to Pakistan.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] and Afghan President Hamid Karzai [Images], who discussed the Mumbai terror attacks [Images], said the incident shows that terrorism poses a threat to the entire humanity and all countries should fulfil their bilateral and multilateral obligations to prevent the scourge.

'The leaders called for full compliance with bilateral, multilateral and international obligations of states to prevent terrorism in any manner originating from territories under their control since terrorism emanates from the sanctuaries and training camps and the sustenance and support received by the terrorist groups,' a joint statement issued after the talks said.

Though the statement did not name Pakistan, the reference was obviously to it as both India and Afghanistan are affected by terrorism emanating from the common neighbour's soil.

Both India and Afghanistan have been complaining about terrorism in their countries getting sanctuary and support in Pakistan.

During the talks, the Indian side shared with Karzai details of probe into Mumbai attacks which clearly point to Pakistani linkages.

Karzai, who undertook the two-day visit to India to show solidarity with India in the wake of Mumbai attacks, discussed with Dr Singh ways to forge greater cooperation to defeat terrorism.
