Taliban Are Pakistan Isi Backed Terrorists, Says Ex Afghan Intelligence Head

Even as the United States has appointed a special envoy for Afghanistan to negotiate and broker peace between the Taliban and the Afghan government, former head of Afghan intelligence Amrullah Saleh on Wednesday called the entire policy of “flawed” and said that Afghanistan has not done enough to increase the “cost of war” for Pakistan.

Asked to elaborate what he meant by the cost of war, the former chief of Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security said, “There is no Afghan dossier on Pakistan in the UN Security Council. We have not presented to the United Nations with a state stamped dossier declaring Pakistan our enemy. We have always tried to leave a few bridges intact and that policy of half-heartedness has not helped us.”

Questioning the entire exercise of engaging the Taliban, Saleh said that unless Pakistan stops supporting these terrorists, there can be no solution in Afghanistan.

Criticising the role of the US and its envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in not seeing the real picture he said, “All the five Taliban representatives who the US envoy met in Doha had flown in from Pakistan which means that they are backed by the Pakistani state.” Read more
