Gen Nicholson levels allegations of Taliban leadership’ presence in Pakistan
KABUL (92 News) – In fresh allegations against Pakistan, Commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan General John Nicholson has on Sunday accused Pakistan of sheltering Taliban leadership.
In an interview with the Afghan media outlet, he said that the US is aware of Afghan Taliban leaders' presence in Quetta and Peshawar, adding that Pakistan has to stop support to these militants, the commander. He added that the issue was being addressed diplomatically.
The US commander alleged that the so-called Quetta shura and Peshawar shura are identified by cities inside Pakistan and we know Afghan Taliban leaders are in these areas.
He stressed the need to address the issue of outside sanctuaries for militants, but noted that it was "being addressed in private between the US government and the Pakistani government".
Nicholson said that following US President Donald Trump’s announcement of new Afghanistan and South Asia strategy, he as a commander had a new policy "One based on conditions and not time."
On the other hand, Pakistan has strongly rejected these allegations and maintained that Islamabad has taken military action against militants of all hue and colors. Pakistan has successfully completed operation Khyber IV eliminating terrorists in Rajgal and Shawal valleys.
Earlier, the top security council of Pakistan, National Security Committee chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has outrightly rejected the specific allegations and insinuation made by President Trump against Pakistan.
