Karzai: Fighting terrorism is a shared responsibility
At the 13th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit, Afghan President Hamid Karzai stated that the war against terrorism is a shared responsibility and cannot be tackled by one country.
The SCO, founded in 2001, is a political, economic and military organization, originally established by China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Karzai urged the other heads of state to begin counterterrorism efforts on their own and not wait for NATO, ISAF or the United States to get involved.
