NEW YORK - Pakistani officials are expressing reservations about the expanded war in Afghanistan by US-led forces, saying it could drive militants into Pakistan. The objection to the new Afghan anti-Taliban campaign comes at a time when thousands of additional US forces are reaching the region, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Pakistani officials have informed the administration of US President Barack Obama that the militants crossing the border because of the Afghan campaign could further aggravate the situation in their already troubled Balochistan province, the NYT said. The officials say Pakistan cannot deploy enough troops to fight the Taliban in Balochistan without affecting security on its border with India. Thus, they say, dialogue with the Taliban in Balochistan would be more in their countrys interest than fighting. However, a US and NATO command official said in an e-mail there was no significant movement of insurgents out of Afghanistan, and no indication of foreign fighters moving into Afghanistan through Balochistan. The NYT report, based on a two-hour briefing the newspaper received from senior analysts and officials of Pakistans main spy service, said it was clear from the Pakistani account that their officials regard India as their main concern and that the Taliban issue can be resolved through talks. In fact, once the US leaves Afghanistan, the Taliban could even once again become allies of Pakistan, the NYT said. The Obama administration officials, while lauding the Pakistani militarys recent operation against the Taliban, say they are frustrated as Pakistani authorities are concerned only about Taliban threatening their government and ignoring the militants fighting Americans in Afghanistan or terrorising India. One of the first briefing slides read, in part: The surge in Afghanistan will further reinforce the perception of a foreign occupation of Afghanistan." "It will result in more civilian casualties; further alienate local population. Thus more local resistance to foreign troops.
