Afghanistan National Army chief Shir Mohammad Karimi blamed the latest deaths of Isaf soldiers at the hands of an Afghan soldier on "neighboring countries" in a speech to the country's security forces.
Karimi said at a graduation ceremony of Afghan forces in Kabul on Thursday that neighbouring counties were trying to undermine the building of the Afghan forces, "paying money to Afghans soldiers and misleading advertising to create problems between Afghan and Nato troops".
Pakistan intelligence officials confirmed the death of Badruddin Haqqani, the son of the militant Haqqani network founder, in a US drone strike in North Waziristan after the Afghan Taliban rejected the news and called it "propaganda".
Pakistani security officials told the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to talk to media that Badruddin Haqqani was killed August 24 in one of three strikes that hit insurgent hideouts in the Shawal area of the North Waziristan tribal region.
The top Nato and US commander in Afghanistan Gen. John Allen postponed his Thursday trip to Pakistan until a later date as another insider shooting rocked the foreign forces.
Allen was expected to visit Pakistan and the Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on Thursday to review the implementation of "border coordination" measures between the two countries.
