HAMGAM BA ROYDADHA: US Remarks On Taliban and Haqqani In Pakistan
The Taliban and Haqqani network are roaming free in Pakistan, the United States Defense Department has said in its first report to the US Congress since Washington’s new strategy on Afghanistan and South Asia was announced.
The Pentagon added that terrorist safe havens along the Durand Line and the presence of terrorists in Afghanistan are threatening the stability of the region.
The report says that “Iran provides some support to the Taliban and publicly justifies its relationship with the Taliban as a means to combat the spread of ISIS-K in Afghanistan. Iran's support to the Taliban undermines the Afghan Government's credibility, adds to instability in the region, and complicates strategic partnership agreements”.
