ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- President Pervez Musharraf has renewed his pledge to crack down on all forms of extremism and terror.

Musharraf told visiting U.S. senators Thursday that his government would continue cooperating with the United States and allied countries in fighting terror.

Musharraf told visiting U.S. Sens. Dan Burton, Sheila Jackson Lee, Joe Wilson, Steven Pearce, Al Green, Carolyn McCarthy and Loretta Sanchez, who called on him at Army House in Rawalpindi on Thursday that Pakistan had sacrificed a lot in the war on terrorism, but would continue cooperating against the global menace.

Musharraf said the war on terrorism had brought the world together in the form of a coalition that had struck a blow to the most visible manifestations of terrorism. He said the sustained campaign would continue to root out terrorism in its various forms worldwide, the Pakistan Daily Times reported.
