Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has told a group of US lawmakers his country will not tolerate terrorist activity across its borders.
Pakistan's Foreign Ministry quotes General Musharraf as making the statement in his meeting on Saturday with the US delegation, which is led by Senator John McCain. The meeting took place in Islamabad at Mr. Musharraf's military residence.
The ministry says Mr. Musharraf also stressed the need for a timely exchange of intelligence between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Afghan officials say Taleban fighters have been using western Pakistan as a base to launch assaults against pro-government Afghan forces.
Another neighbor, India, accuses Pakistan of arming and training militants fighting a bloody separtist war against Indian rule in Kashmir.
However, the United States considers Pakistan a key ally in its war on terrorism. Washington has given Pakistan a steady stream of military and monetary aid for its support in fighting al-Qaida since the September 11th attacks nearly two years ago.
