ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan's president says his nation's intelligence services are willing to cooperate closer with Afghanistan against Taliban militants.

President Asif Ali Zardari told reporters after meeting Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday that their cooperation improved after Zardari took office and “We intend to enhance it further.”

He says: “We need more security cooperation between our intelligence and their intelligence, which Pakistan is willing to offer.”

It was not clear if the offer was endorsed by Pakistan's military and intelligence establishment, which historically wields more power than civilian rulers.

The two nations have a tense history, marred by recent Afghan allegations that Pakistan allows and even encourages militant attacks.
