Pakistan supporoting terror groups: US general
A top US general John “Mick” Nicholson says, it is difficult to destroy the “enemy” in Afghanistan, if terror groups like the Haqqani network and Taliban have sanctuaries in Pakistan.
“General John “Mick” Nicholson, who has been nominated by the Pentagon as Commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan, told this to the members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Nicholson asked Pakistan to take persistent action against the Taliban, particularly the Haqqani Network.
Haqqani network, which is linked to al-Qaeda has also been blamed for several deadly attacks against Western and Indian interests in Afghanistan, including the 2008 bombing of the Indian mission in Kabul.
