Pakistan accused of taking money from Afghanistan for release of Taliban cadres
Islamabad: A former Afghan spymaster has accused Pakistan of taking money from Afghanistan for the recent release of Taliban cadres.
Former head of National Directorate of Security (NDS), Amrullah Saleh, claimed that the Pakistani government had even offered to mediate between the Afghan government and the Taliban, reports The Express Tribune.
Saleh, who is known for his anti-Pakistan statements , said Pakistan is no longer denying to having harboured the Taliban leadership, and its government is now putting a high price tag on the Taliban.
Saleh also alleged that Pakistan has been treating Afghanistan as a 'sub-nation' and wished to 'dominate' the war-torn country.
Pakistan's foreign ministry rejected Saleh's claims outright, saying neither did the government take money from Afghanistan for releasing the prisoners, nor did they offer any mediation.
