On an unannounced visit to Afghanistan, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle acknowledged the challenges facing the country.

The militant attack in India-ruled Kashmir has once again put New Delhi and Islamabad on a war footing. Analysts at the Munich Security Conference say it is a setback to those who wish to see lasting peace in the region.
