ISI behind Afghanistan war, says Afghan vice president

Kabul, Aug 15 (IANS) Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is behind the fighting across war-raged Afghanistan, says Afghan Vice-President Abdul Rashid Dostum, the media reported.

“The war not only in north but in the entire country, everyone knows, who are leading them,” TOLONews quoted Dostum as saying.

“One day, the (insurgent) groups fight under the name of Al Qaeda and the other day under the name of IS. But ISI and Pakistan’s (military) generals are organising and financing these groups,” he said.

Talking about Islamic State fighters in Afghanistan, Dostum stated that Pakistan wanted to continue the war in Afghanistan through the IS, which he said was a puppet of the neighbouring country.

“They (Pakistani officials) said they are bringing Taliban to negotiation table. But they want to continue war by IS. This is one of the political games of Pakistan,” said Dostum.
