An alleged secret NATO report states that the Pakistani security services are secretly helping Afghanistan's Taliban, the BBC reported Wednesday. Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said the leak should be "disregarded”.
REUTERS - Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said on Wednesday that a leaked U.S. military report claiming Pakistan supported the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan can be “disregarded”.
“We can disregard this as a potentially strategic leak... This is old wine in an even older bottle,” she told reporters during an official visit to the Afghan capital Kabul.
The U.S. military said in a secret report the Taliban are set to retake control of Afghanistan after NATO-led forces withdraw from the country, raising the prospect of a major failure of Western policy after a costly war.
Khar, whose visit was the first high-level meeting in months between officials from both countries, added that the neighbours should stop blaming each other for strained cross-border ties.
“We must start engaging in the end of blame games," she said.
