KABUL: In what appears to be a tit-for-tat move, Afghan ambassador to Islamabad has reportedly handed over a list to Pakistan claiming existence of Taliban and Haqqani leaders and terrorist camps in the neighbouring country, a spokesman for Afghan Interior Ministry said. The move comes after Pakistan pressed Kabul to take action against terrorists attacking Pakistan using Afghanistan's soil after a series of deadly terrorist attacks.
"AFG Ambassador in Islamabad handed AFG Ambassador in Islamabad handed over a list of 85 Taliban and Haqaani leaders, 32 terrorist training camps exist in Pakistan, awaits actions!," Sediq Sediqqi wrote on his Twitter account. "AFG government and people demand immediate actions against 85 Taliban and Haqqani leaders and 32 terror training camps in Pakistan which is behind all terrorist attacks n Afghanistan," he claimed. Last week, Pakistan army had demanded Afghanistan hand over 76 terrorists after a deadly suicide attack that killed 83 people and injuring over 300 people at the shrine of Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif.
