NORTH WAZIRISTAN, PAKISTAN – FEBRUARY 17: Pakistan’s remote North Waziristan tribal area is seen from the air Feb. 17, 2007. NATO and the Afghan government say that Taliban and Al Qaida fighters cross into Afghanistan from the Pakistani tribal areas to stage attacks on NATO troops, especially since a peace deal was signed in September 2006 between Pakistani forces and the Taliban. The Pak military, which has some 80,000 troops stationed in the tribal areas, says the Afghan government and NATO should stop blaming Pakistan for Afghanistan’s internal problems.
