It won't be surprising to know about ISI-Haqqani Network ties: ISAF chief.
Allen said he could not speculate why the ISI was doing anything, but insisted that these relations were unhelpful.
"In this forum I can't really speculate on why the ISI does anything with respect to the Haqqanis. I don't think we should be surprised that they have a relationship, that relationship with the ISI and a number of these organisations goes back a very long time," The Express Tribune quoted him, as saying.
"We shouldn't be surprised that they have a relationship, I would not speculate on what specific operational support they have or whether they are an actual arm. I would just say that the relationship potentially is unhelpful," Allen added.
Insisting that the ISAF has tried to revamp procedures after the Salala incident to reduce occurence of another incident like this, he further said: "Opportunities exist with Pakistan to increase cooperation". ( ANI )
