Pakistan’s DG ISI rejects allegations levelled by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani

TASHKENT – Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed Friday rejected the allegations made by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani regarding infiltration from Pakistan.

The top spymaster stated this while talking to a Pakistani private news channel in Tashkent where he is attending the Central and South Asia Conference 2021 along with Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is visiting Uzbekistan on two-day long visit.

Ghani, during his address at the conference, leveled baseless allegations against Pakistan and claimed that 10,000 fighters had crossed over into Afghanistan from the neighbouring country.

In fact, the DG ISI responded, infiltration was being made from Afghanistan.

"Pakistan desires peace in the neighbouring country as a durable peace Afghanistan is in the interest of the region," he said. "We do not support any faction in Afghanistan,” he added.

Pakistan wants negotiated settlement of the Afghan issue, he further said.
