British PM David Cameron is in Pakistan promoting Afghan peace efforts. Pakistani PM Sharif says he supports the peace effort.
Cameron was previously in Afghanistan, where he heard Hamid Karzai accuse of Pakistan of wanting to see Afghanistan divided into "fiefdoms." Excerpt:
Speaking at a joint press conference with the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, President Karzai said that, "We have heard rumors and we have seen efforts by some countries...For six months, there have been efforts underway to bring fiefdoms to Afghanistan."

"We have reports of Pakistan making such efforts. I don't know what Pakistan's benefit is in following an agenda of week governance in Afghanistan," added Karzai.
