Kabul (BNA) NATO’s top commander in Afghanistan, U.S general John Allen, will travel to Pakistan for talks in which he is expected to urge Pakistan to curb cross border incursions by Haqani militants blamed for several attacks in Kabul.
Allen, commander of the 130,000 strong NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, will arrive Pakistan on Wednesday to review border coordination with Pakistan army chief General Ashfaq Kayani, Pakistan’s military said.
Allen is also likely to raise mounting concern in Afghanistan about three attacks blamed on the Haqani network, which NATO believes is controlled from Pakistan, and which began in Kabul on April 15.
The latest occurred only last week when insurgent gunmen stormed a lakeside hotel on Kabul’s outskirts and burst into a party, seizing dozens of civilian hostages and killing 20 people in a 12-hours siege ended by Afghan based and foreign security forces.
Allen said the attack bore the signature of the Taliban-linked Haqani group, with he said continued to operate from Pakistan, a charge that could further worsen already tense cross borer relations with Islamabad.
June 1st bombing at a U.S. in base Khost province the largest, in southeastern Afghanistan was also later linked by NATO officials to the Haqani Network, with U.S. officials discounting the Taliban due to the complexity of the attack.
Pakistan lodged a counter- protest to NATO and the Afghan military on Monday, accusing them of failing to act against safe havens in Afghanistan after a cross-border militant attack killed 13 Pakistani troops, seven of whom were beheaded.
Pakistan wants Afghan and NATO to act against Afghan based militants who cross the border to attack Pakistan forces and civilians while the United States calls on Pakistan to stop providing safe haves for militants fighting NATO forces backing Afghanistan’s government against the Taliban.
Hajji Yousouf, the Afghan police commander for Narai district of eastern Kunar province from where the militants were said to have come, said no insurgents had crossed the mountainous border, which is notoriously difficult to control.
“They are based (in Pakistan) near the border with Afghanistan and now they have turned to attack the Pakistan government. Afghans and foreign forces in Afghanistan are not involved, “he said.
