NATO view on Afghan-Pakistan region sought
by UPI

BRUSSELS - U.S. President Barack Obama wants input from NATO ministers as his advisers review U.S. policy toward Afghanistan, Vice President Joe Biden said in Brussels.

"I came to listen," Biden said Tuesday before meeting with the North Atlantic Council. "We're here to consult. We're here to listen. We're here to come up with a joint strategy."

After he meeting, Biden noted during a joint news conference with NATO Secretary-General Japp de Hoop Scheffer that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and the 2008 attack on Mumbai were planned in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.

"We know that it was from this same area that al-Qaida and its extremist allies are regenerating and conceiving new atrocities to visit upon us," Biden said, which is why Obama wants to review its strategy for Afghanistan-Pakistan region. "None of us can escape the responsibility to meet these threats."

Obama insisted the United States consult with its allies to produce "a truly common vision of how to proceed," Biden said. "And I pledged to them, as I pledge to all Europeans now, that we will build their ideas into our review," expected to be presented to President Obama by the end of March ahead of the NATO summit in April.
