US asks Pakistan to target all militant groups

The US has asked Pakistan to target all militant groups, including the Lashkar-e-Taiba(LeT), after release of a state department cable which suggested strong links between the notorious spy agency ISI and the Haqqani network.

“We have been consistently clear with the highest levels of the government of Pakistan that it must target all militant groups, including the Haqqani Network, al-Qaida, Lashkar-e-Taiba,” said state department spokesman John Kirby.

“The government of Pakistan itself has repeatedly said it’s not going to discriminate against a terrorist group regardless of their agenda or affiliation,” he said.

Kirby was responding to a question on a series of latest US cable released by the National Security Archive which suggest strong links between Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and the Haqqani network.
