The Afghan intelligence – national directorate of security (NDS) chief, Rahmatullah Nabil has said that the Pakistan intelligence agencies are looking share power with Taliban in the next government of Afghanistan.
Nabil said the main motive behind continued cross-border shelling and violence in eastern provinces of Afghanistan is to pave the way for the sharing of power with Taliban.
Nabil further added that the anti-government armed militant groups are also seeking to disrupt the peace talks in a bid to have a share in the future government.
While speaking during an interview with the Radio Liberty, Nabil said the national security advisor to Pakistan’s prime minister, Sartaj Aziz, had said earlier that certain provinces of Afghanistan should be handed over to Taliban.
He said the Pakistani intelligence agencies wants to prove that the government of Afghanistan is weak, by disrupting and challenging the outcome of the elections through continued cross-border incursions.
However, he said the Afghan forces are prepared to thwart any plot for disrupting the elections and urged the people of Afghanistan to participate in the election runoff.
Nabil also added that certain Taliban group leaders and militants were killed or jailed after they failed to disrupt the first round of elections.
He said Lashkar-e-Taiba and other militant groups which have direct links with Pakistani intelligence, are actively operating in Kunar and Ghazni provinces.
Nabil also called on Taliban group to sit-in for peace talks and insisted that violence is not the solution to the current situation of the country.
