Ankara: Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday met Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari in a bid to increase cooperation between their two nations despite an attack last week that wounded the Afghan spy chief.

Afghan intelligence chief Asadullah Khalid was seriously injured when a suicide bomber posing as a Taliban peace envoy detonated an explosive. The Afghan leader has said the attack was organized in Pakistan but has refrained from directly accusing Islamabad.

Afghan officials said however, Karzai would present evidence to Zardari about the attack on Khalid during today's meeting in the Turkish capital Ankara, hosted by Turkish President Abdullah Gul.

It is the Turkish, Afghan and Pakistani leaders' seventh such meeting aimed at advancing the peace process between Kabul and Islamabad.
