DG. Asad Durrani, the former head of Pakistan’s ISI, said that despite the pressures, he used to support the Taliban in any way he could.
In a recent interview with the BBC, Asad #Durrani said he also had links to the mujahedin and helped them drive the Soviet Union out of Afghanistan.
He says that just as he had influence over the #Mujahideen, he did the same with the Taliban and cooperated with the group in any way possible.
He added that the same with the Taliban, despite all the pressure, we influenced them and kept in touch with them.
“Pakistan can use its power against the Mujahideen and the Taliban to talk and whatever decision negotiators make is acceptable to us, there is nothing more Pakistan can do.” According to Durrani.
This is despite the fact that the international community and Afghans have long said that Pakistan has influence over the Taliban and is helping them, but the country has often denied this, some Pakistani officials who have resigned or have been retired, uncovered similar secrets that shows #Pakistan’s_links to the Taliban and that the country supported their war in Afghanistan.
