MABAD (Agencies) - Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that the Haqqani network was created and trained by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), reported private TV channels.
Speaking to the media in Islamabad on Sunday, Malik rejected US claims of the Haqqani network operating from Pakistan soil. He maintained that the Haqqanis have no links with Pakistan and are operating from Afghanistan.
Maliks statements run contrary to claims by the Haqqanis, who recently warned Washington against any military adventure in the North Waziristan tribal agency. Sirajuddin Haqqani said hed look forward to a US ground attack in North Waziristan. The United States will suffer more losses [in North Waziristan] than they did in Afghanistan, he said.
Rehman Malik said no compromise will be made on Pakistans sovereignty as Pakistan suffered a loss of $68 billion in the fight against terrorism. Malik also said that no one will be allowed to enter Pakistan without immigration clearance.
