After a high level meeting with his aides and cabinet members focusing on the country''s diminishing law and order, Karzai blamed the premier spy agency of Pakistan, ISI and Pak army for the increasing insecurity and lawlessness in Afghanistan .

A press release from the cabinet sent to CBS News said Afghanistan had done its best during the last six-and-a-half years to stay away from a war of words with Pakistan and did everything it could do to have a friendly relationship with its neighbor. But, according to the statement, the intelligence agency and Pak army sustained its interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan .

The press release added that Afghanistan suffered tremendous losses due to the intrusion of Pakistani spies and their atrocities.

"Every day, in each and every corner of the country our children, women, Ulema, teachers and workers of international community have been killed by the plots of the ISI agency," the release said. "Our schools and hospitals are being torched."

"The people of Afghanistan and the international community are now quite sure that Pakistan has not only become a safe haven for terrorists but it also exports terrorism."

"We supported the recent elections in Pakistan with the hope that the new government would watch the activities of ISI and would take practical steps in stop ISI from interfering in the internal dealings of Afghanistan ."

The release cited the Kandahar jailbreak, the beheading of Afghans in Bajaur and Waziristan , the recent suicide blast in Urozghan and the bombing of the Indian embassy as being the work of the Pakistani spy agency.

Karzai warned that unless Pakistan can convince him that they''ll reel the spy agency in, talks scheduled between the two countries about assistance on the border and economic cooperation in the coming would be postponed.

An Afghan political analyst Ahmad Saad Saedi, who served recently as diplomat in Pakistan told Yousafzai Karzai should take a clear stand on Pakistan ''s interference in Afghanistan ''s domestic affairs.

" Pakistan plays the role of an arrogant and self-seeking regional power and believes strongly that Afghanistan would harm Pakistan , which is why it does not want peace in Afghanistan ,” Saedi added.

Saedi believes the U.S. should pressure Pakistan to stop inciting violence in Afghanistan .

In a sign that tensions between the two countries is coming to a head, a couple of Karzai''s ministers suggested the Afghan ambassador to Islamabad be recalled temporarily as a sign of protest, according to a source inside the Karzai palace.
