India lay blame with Pakistan for wave of terror attacks in Afghanistan

Following reports about the release of an American-Canadian couple from Haqqani network's captivity in Pakistan, the Afghan Ministry of Defense said most of those who are kidnapped in Afghanistan, foreigners in particular, are held as hostages in the neighboring country.

"The couple had been held for five years inside Pakistan", Pompeo yesterday said during a wide-ranging discussion at the Foundation for Defence of Democracies, a Washington-based think-tank.

After the recovery of hostages, the Pakistan military officials emphasised the importance of co-operation and intelligence sharing by Washington.

That strategy was outlined by President Donald Trump this summer as part of his approach to ending the 16-year war, in addition to an incremental increase in USA forces there. It said: "We condemn terrorism in all forms and manifestations and reaffirms our firm commitment to continued efforts and cooperation for eliminating this menace".

Trump, in August, had accused Pakistan of harbouring "agents of chaos and terror" and the "very enemy United States forces have fighting in Afghanistan" for the past 17 years.

India also expressed concern over the growing incidents of terrorist violence in Afghanistan.

Condemning the "barbaric" attack on an army camp in Kandahar province in which 43 soldiers were killed, the Ministry of External Affairs said the recent strikes "demonstrate" that safe havens and support systems continue to be available to terrorists.

"The couple had been held for five years inside Pakistan", the Central Intelligence Agency chief said while speaking during a function in Washinton at the Foundation for Defence of Democracies.
