: "UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Chafing under criticism that Pakistan is not doing enough to counter terrorism, President Pervez Musharraf offered Monday to construct a security fence to deter incursion of militants and drug merchants from Afghanistan.
Musharraf made the offer at a meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that was expanded to 75 minutes from the 30 minutes originally planned. It sets the stage for President Bush's meeting with the Pakistani leader on Tuesday.
'We don't ever want anybody to say Pakistan is not doing enough,' Foreign Minister Khurshid M. Kasuri said. The minister said he was 'fed up' over such allegations.
Declining to say whether Rice expressed support for the idea, Kasuri said 'she heard us out' and was 'very appreciative' of Pakistan's desire to help stop infiltration from both sides of the border with Afghanistan.
Later, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said, 'We think it is important that Pakistan and Afghanistan take up this idea.'"
