KABUL - There are circles inside Pakistani government that are cooperating with terrorist groups, President Karzai's Deputy Spokesperson said on Saturday.
Deputy Spokesperson for President Karzai Seyamak Herawi remarked that Afghan government has consistently suggested to the international community and Pakistan's government to keep an eye on organizations providing support to militants.
"Pakistan's government should know that terrorism is like a sleeping snake in its sleeve that can hurt it at any time," Mr Herawi said.
US Special Forces killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan last week. The al-Qaeda leader's death in a country that is one of the United State's top allies in the fight against terrorism has questioned Islamabad's credibility in the counterinsurgency combat.
Senior Pakistani security officials have told Reuters on Saturday that Osama Bin Laden may have lived in Pakistan for over seven years before being killed in an operation by a small team of US special force in Abbottabad, a garrison town 150km north of Islamabad.
Analysts say the death of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan is an evidence about Pakistan's military intelligence agency's close relation with regional terrorism.
"Terrorist networks in Pakistan are led and fueled by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Agency. And it's the ISI that is responsible for the death of innocent men, women and children all around the globe," former Member of Parliament, Noor-ul Haqq Olumi, said.
The former Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf has described the failure of Pakistan's spy agency in tracking Osama Bin Laden, while living near Islamabad, as shockingly embarrassing.
It is very shockingly embarrassing that Bin Laden was found living such close to the Pakistani military academy, Musharraf has said.
Pervez Musharraf has said he believes this is a case of acute failure of intelligence which needs to be investigated. We should find out who really did the mistake and it's the responsibility of Pakistan's spy organization and army.
Karzai's Deputy Spokesperson called on Pakistan to review approaches that could be working for security in the region and in the world.
Meanwhile, members of High Peace Council said reaction of the Taliban after the death of Osama Bin Laden is an indication of their tight relation with al-Qaeda network. (Tolo News)
