Afghanistan's National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar who was also speaking at the Conference, highlighted that his country shares border with Pakistan which has the highest concentration of terrorists.

Despite international investment in counter terrorism, terrorism is growing its capabilities and presence in Afghanistan-Pakistan region, added Mohammad Hanif Atmar.

Pakistan's former national security adviser Mahmud Ali Durrani said the 26/11 Mumbai attack was carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan and called it a "classic" example of cross-border terror.

At the same time, he, however, said the Pakistani government had no role in the attack. Durrani was speaking at a conference on combating terrorism at the Institute of Defence Studies and Analysis. 26/11 Mumbai strike, carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan, was a classic trans-border terrorist event, he said.
