`Attack on Indian Embassy to heighten Indo-Pak tension`
Washington: The attack on Indian Embassy in
Kabul that killed at least 17 people and injured 76 others is
likely to bring renewed pressure on Pakistan to take decisive
action against terrorists using its soil to launch offensive
against neighbours, a US-based global think-tank said today.
"As was the case in the 2008 attack, the October 8 bomb
(attack) will likely be linked to militants based in Pakistan
and there will also be likely connections made to elements
within Islamabad`s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)
directorate," The Stratfor said in its analysis on the second
attack targeted at the Indian Embassy in Kabul.
It said that the attack gives "credence" to the US
position and "weakens" the case of the Pakistani military
regarding the Kerry-Lugar Bill.
"But more importantly, the bombing has the potential of
creating problems between India and Pakistan," it said.
The attack came less than 24 hours after the Pakistani
military`s central command issued a statement criticising the
Kerry-Lugar Bill which says that Pakistan is a launch pad for
militant groups conducting attacks in Afghanistan and India.
