Rice for joint Pak-US operations in volatile FATA

Tue, 01 Jan 2008 ANI

Lahore, Aug.4 (ANI): Stating that extremists continue to be trained in Pakistan's remote and often volatile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has categorically stated that peace talks with the militants have failed, and therefore, advocated joint Pakistan-United States military operations to improve the deteriorating situation there.

 

According to Geo News and the Daily Times, Rice laid stress on immediate action in FATA based on the claim that extremists were not only being trained there, but were also using modern weapons.

 

Saying that terrorists were a major threat to both Afghanistan and Pakistan, Rice, however, refused to comment on allegations that the Inter-Services Intelligence was involved in the Indian embassy blast in Kabul.

 

NATO and Afghan forces claim that Pakistan's peace talks with extremists have resulted in a 40 percent rise in rebel activity in Afghanistan this year compared to the same period in 2007.

 

While they claim that militant activity is originating from mainly from militants based in the FATA, Pakistan insists that any action on Pakistani territory is its sole prerogative. (ANI)
