KABUL: The operational leader of Taliban-allied militant group the Haqqani network denied any recent links between his network and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), in an interview with the BBC released on Monday.
Sirajuddin Haqqani also denied that the network killed Afghan peace envoy Burhanuddin Rabbani
Haqqani said the network, blamed for a string of high-profile recent attacks on Western targets in the Afghan capital Kabul, were not linked to Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI.
“We haven’t killed Burhanuddin Rabbani and this has been said many times by the spokespersons of the Islamic Emirate,” he said, referring to the Taliban.
