Al Jazeera English - CENTRAL/S. ASIA - Taliban wants ‘new world order’.

Asif Ali Zardari, the Pakistani president, has said that his country’s fight against the Taliban is not just a domestic battle but one that the whole world needs to be wary of.

Speaking during a news conference in London with Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, Zardari said the Taliban are seeking to create a “new world order” and that more effort was needed by the international communty to defeat the fighters.

Standing alongside Brown, Zardari said: “It [the Taliban's cause] is a long-term endeavour and we are both united to fight against this endeavour which is challenging our way of life and wants to change the way of life of the world.”

The president’s comments came as the Taliban in Pakistan warned politicians from the Swat valley that they and their families will be attacked unless they quit their posts in protest against the continuing army offensive in the troubled region.
