Pak rejects Afghan Army chief`s claim of `controlling Taliban`
Islamabad: Pakistan has `categorically rejected` Afghan army chief`s remarks alleging that it could end the 12-year conflict in Afghanistan within weeks if it was really committed to peace.
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said the allegations that Pakistan controls the Taliban and has unleashed them on Afghanistan have no basis.
Afghan Army chief of staff General Sher Mohammad Karimi in an interview broadcast by the BBC said that Pakistan could end the Afghan war in weeks if it were serious about peace.
According to Dawn News, Islamabad said Pakistan has exercised extreme restraint in the face of highly provocative language and totally fabricated accusations by the Afghan civil and military officials over the last few months.
Karimi accused Pakistan of closing down madrassa schools that serve as incubators of extremism and as a result had unleashed the Taliban on Afghanistan, the report added.
