Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Kayani finally admits Pak needs to do more one in war against terror

Kayani finally admits Pak needs to do more one in war against terrorIslamabad - Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has said that more needs to be done in the fight against terrorism, according to a statement by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).

Kayani said this during a meeting with outgoing commander of the 50-nation coalition force in Afghanistan General John Allen, reports The Dawn.

General Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the new ISAF commander, also attended the meeting at the military headquarters in Rawalpindi. Issues relating to peace and stability in the region and strengthening cross-border cooperation were discussed, the report said.

ISAF described the meeting as "the latest in a regular series of engagements aimed at bolstering the military-to-military relationship between Isaf and Pakistan as well as improving security in the region".

Pakistan military's public affairs wing, ISPR, did not issue a statement on the meeting.

Pakistani leaders, particularly the military commanders, have always resented the American "do more" mantra, therefore it was probably one of those rare occasions that the Kayani himself acknowledged that the counter-terrorism efforts needed to be expanded.

In the past, Pakistani leaders responded to "do more" demands by saying the US instead needed to do more in the war in Afghanistan.

The US frustration with Pakistan had been about the continued presence of terrorist sanctuaries in tribal areas along the Pak-Afghan border and the presence of the Haqqani network.

However, both sides appreciated the improved coordination between ISAF and Pakistani military over the past year after the relationship hit rock bottom in the aftermath of the Salala border post attack in which several Pakistani troops were killed.
