A senior Pakistani leader has said the South Asian nation supports not only the Taliban but also Al-Qaeda to gain their regional goals.
Pakistani politician Afrasiab Khattak told 1TV news as quoted by Khaama Press that the Afghan conflict is ‘rooted outside the country’.
The US- Taliban deal was against the international rules, it is due to the deal was made with a non-state negotiating group that promises to renounce violence and government recognition matters, Khattak told 1TV news as quoted by Khaama Press.
He made the comments at a time when Taliban deputy political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar is believed to have visited Pakistan in recent days.
In a cell phone video that surfaced on social media in the last few days, the head of the Taliban’s political office, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, seems to be briefing a Taliban cadre on the ongoing peace negotiations in Doha and acknowledging the presence of the Taliban’s top leadership in Pakistan, reports Voice of America.
The Afghanistan Foreign Affairs Ministry reacted to the videos and posted on Twitter: “The overt presence & activities of Afghan insurgent elements & their leaders in Pakistani territory clearly violate AFG’s national sovereignty & continue to cause crisis and instability in the region, posing a serious challenge to achieving lasting peace in AFG.”
