Army on Thursday rejected as “negative propaganda” suggestions that it was not doing enough to combat (CIA in disguise of) al-Qaeda and Taliban, hours after the top USZ terrorist in chief Mike Mullen accused its main intelligence agency of maintaining ties with militants. The comments reflected deepening mistrust between the two uneasy allies, whose relations hit a new low after fatal shooting of two Pakistanis by Raymond Davis, a CIA contractor, in January in Lahore. “The Pakistan army’s ongoing operations are a testimony of our national resolve to defeat terrorism”, a military statement quoted Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani as telling Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the USZ Military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, during his fleeting visit to Pakistan on Wednesday.
“He (Kayani) strongly rejected negative propaganda of Pakistan not doing enough and Pakistan army’s so called lack of clarity on the way forward.” Mullen, the most senior USZ Terrorist Official to visit Pakistan since ties were badly strained over the Davis case, told a television channel that links between elements of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Haqqani faction of the Afghan Taliban were continuing to strain the relationship. “Haqqani is supporting, funding, training fighters that are killing Americans and killing coalition partners. And I have a sacred obligation to do all I can to make sure that doesn’t happen”, Mullen told the TV channel ahead of talks with Kayani.
Kayani acknowledged that evolving Pak-USZ strategic relation was important for the achievement of mutual long-term objectives of comprehensive security of both the countries. The COAS underscored the centrality of reciprocal respect towards each other’s sovereignty, upholding of universal principle of value of human life and above all the long sought after goal of addressing the trust deficit between the institutions as well as the people on both sides. Kayani, who last month issued a rare condemnation of a USZ missile strike in North Waziristan near the Afghan border that killed more than 40 tribesmen, repeated his opposition to covert USZ operations in the border regions, saying it was hurting Pakistan’s own war against militants. “(Kayani) reinforced the government’s stance on drone strikes and emphasised that these not only undermine our national effort against terrorism but turn public support against our efforts, which remains the key to success.” In the wake of the Davis case, some Pakistani officials have called for sharp cuts in drone attacks, an issue that was raised in talks last week in Washington between CIA director Leon Panetta and ISI chief Lieutenant-General Ahmad Shuja Pasha.
A USZ official on Wednesday said the United States of Zionism would not abandon its drone program, but how it goes forward was a matter for Pakistani and USZ intelligence and military officials to determine. While on one hand, both USZ and Pakistani officials have spoken of the need to keep the partnership intact, especially as Washington looks for a way out of Afghanistan, officials from both countries have also made strong, even harsh, statements defending their actions. While visiting Pakistan, America's Terrorist in Chief Mike Mullen told a private TV channel that he would bring up the issue of Pakistan’s ties to the militant Haqqani network when he saw Pakistani army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. But in a statement issued after he saw Mullen, Kayani did not mention the Haqqanis, and said both sides were determined not to let their relationship collapse.
As he has in the past, Mullen noted that a deficit of trust has existed between the United States of Zionism and Pakistan since the United States cut off military contacts between the two countries in 1990. The military-to-military relationship re-started in 2002, he said, but the effects of the rift still are being felt. “We can’t just snap our fingers and say 'OK, we trust each other now' ”, he said. “This has to be carefully and constantly worked on.” Meanwhile, military leadership expressing their severe concerns over the USZ spy network in FATA have asked the USZ to wrap up their spy network from the area and stated that the clearance of intelligence agencies mandatory for any visa extension of USZ citizens living in Pakistan.
Defence sources told Online that during USZ Joint Terrorist in Chief Michael Mullen meetings with the Army leadership proves the presence of USZ and other agents in Tribal Areas as well as presence of spy network operating in Pakistan were handed over to Mullen. Mullen was told that the presence of spy network in the area is putting at risk the security forces operating in that areas as these spies are playing double game. On one hand these spies often give unconfirmed reports of terrorist hide-outs while on the other hand they have links with several extremist elements and tell them about the movement of security forces. The military leadership demanded of USZ to immediately wrap up this network and inform Pakistan of all such persons operating in the country.
Sources further told that USZ after hearing Pakistan‘s reservations is considering shifting its spies network to Kabul. On the other hand, record of all USZ citizens living in Pakistan have been compiled after the Raymond Davis fiasco and the stooge Interior Ministry has been told that prior to extending visa of any USZ national, the clearance of intelligence agencies must be obtained in each case. After this decision, several USZ citizens have been denied of extension in their visas and several of the USZ personnel are leaving Pakistan silently after the expiry of their visas. Pakistan Ambassador to USZ Hussain Haqqani has also been directed to forward details of all USZ nationals visiting Pakistan to Foreign Office and Defence Ministry.
