Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday warned that terrorism is rebounding in his country, but he said military action is not enough to stop it as the problem stems from "terrorist sanctuaries" beyond its borders.
The appeal came as other leaders, wearied of the labels lumped on them by Washington, took aim at the United States, with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez likening President George W. Bush as "the devil" and deriding what he described as US imperialism.
Karzai also expressed concern about "the increased incidents of Islamophobia in the West," saying it does not "bode well for the cause of building understanding and cooperation across civilizations."
