'Pakistan's agenda to control Afghanistan intact'

Dhananjay Mahapatra in Kabul

Pakistan's agenda to gain control of Afghanistan by supporting the Taliban and to use the country to spread terror in Kashmir is still intact, the chief of Afghanistan's military security, General Mohammed Zahir Akbar, said on Wednesday.

"Pakistan's agenda for Afghanistan is intact. They still want to support the Taliban to destroy the peace that has returned to this war-torn country. The network of Inter-services Intelligence in the country is still trying to use this territory to prepare militants to fight in Kashmir and the rest of India," Zahir told PTI in an exclusive interview.

Asked what steps were being taken by the government to break the network, he said the people of Afghanistan "are telling us about the ISI agents and their activities. We are finding them one by one and we will destroy the network," he said.

On Afghanistan's future relations with Pakistan, he said: "We do not have any enmity with Pakistan as a nation. If they change their policy towards Afghanistan, we will have no problem with our neighbour."

When asked about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden, the military security chief said: "We believe he is still in the mountains of Tora Bora with a band of followers. We are looking for him and we will capture him, insah allah."
