New Delhi: The Pakistani Haqqani network, which was convicted for the terror attack on Sikhs in Kabul in March last year, has spoken to form a new joint team with terror outfit al-Qaeda. The US Treasury Department has disclosed this. In evaluating its work to combat terror financing and money laundering, the US Treasury Department has also disclosed that even after signing an agreement with the US in February last year, the Afghan Taliban with al-Qaeda has increased.
The Haqqani network was described as part of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency on behalf of Admiral Mike Mullen, former chief of the US staff. It was convicted with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the attack on a Sikh shrine in Kabul last year. 30 people were killed.
In January, the U.S. Treasury Department submitted some papers to the Pentagon, saying, "Senior Haqqani network data has talked about the formation of a new joint unit of armed fighters cooperated and funded by al-Qaeda." However, no other information has been given.
