14 September 2005 -- The Afghan government welcomed today a Pakistani proposal to build a fence to stop Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters from coming into
Interior Ministry spokesman Lutfullah Mashal said Afghanistan welcomed cooperation over the border fencing. However, he said the border with Pakistan
had to be settled first.
Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf offered yesterday to erect a fence between the two countries to prevent incursions from either side.
Musharraf made the offer during talks in New York with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The border between the countries is about 2,400 kilometers.
Sounds like a good idea, but I would rather have more countries involved in donating money to make the fence. And they would defintly have to have a
special security force inhabiting it, kinda like the Israel, Palistine setup. Have guard towers and other instalations every like 1 mile. As I said
it would be a multi nation investment kinda thing.
