Afghanistan keen observer of Pakistan polls

Kabul closely monitoring landmark election but any reconciliation between neighbouring states seems remote.

    Afghanistan is watching closely as neighbouring Pakistan goes to the polls in a landmark election.

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly said Pakistan harbours fighters and wants to destabilise Afghanistan.
