Taliban New Delhi, July 27 (ANI): India today officially reacted on the revelations made in the documents leaked on Monday by WikiLeaks, and asked Pakistan to cease its policy of sponsoring terrorism.

In a strongly worded statement, India has asked Pakistan to cease forthwith its policy of sponsoring terrorism and stop the utilization of its territory for recruiting and providing haven to terrorists.

“Sponsorship of terrorism, as an instrument of policy, is wholly condemnable and must cease forthwith,” said Ministry of External Affairs official spokesperson Vishnu Prakash in a statement.

“The utilization of territory under Pakistan’s control to provide sanctuaries for recruiting and sustaining terrorist groups, and to direct terrorist activity against neighbors, must stop if our region is to attain its full potential for peaceful development,” he added.

WikiLeaks, the whistle-blower organization has posted over 90,000 classified US military reports about the Afghan war on its website, which exposes Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI’s profound links with Taliban, and its complicity in terrorist attacks on Indian interests in Afghanistan including attack on the Indian Embassy in 2008.

The leak is seen as a biggest in US military history.

The information provided by the website suggest that Pakistan, an ostensible ally of the United States, allows representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders including the President Hamid Karzai.

The document dealing with the Indian Embassy is titled “Threat Report…Threat to Indian Embassy.” The date of information is June 30, 2008, whilethe date of report is July 1, 2008. The organisation involved is “Taliban Centre.”

The latest revelations made by WikiLeaks has come as a big embarrassment for Islamabad, which claims to be a frontline ally of United States in its war against terror and has been receiving a hefty dole from Washington for its efforts.

The confidential papers leaked on WikiLeaks website, which reportedly gives a first hand account of nexus between Taliban and ISI only echoes what India has been trying bring to the knowledge of the international after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and the recent expose will further vindicate India’s position.
