President Karzai referred to some conversation about the children of Aafia Siddiqi during the talks which he said changed his mind to speak other than the prepared statement.

“I had a prepared statement but in the event during bilateral talks I changed my mind about it. That event was a little conversation between us about two children of Aafia Siddiqui,….who are probably in Afghanistan.” The Afghan President said that he had sent the elder boy of Aafia Siddiqui back to Pakistan soon after he knew that he was in Afghanistan.

However, he added, “Hearing of the two other children I was struck with emotions and I am still under that impression”, he said and added, “this tragedy of the two children brings us to the tragedy of two countries, sufferings of the two countries”.
