Lahore, Mar. 20 (ANI): Taliban leader Maulvi Nazir has said that the US troops stationed in Afghanistan were absolutely the groups target. We have readied suicide bombers for them. They cannot escape us, Maulvi Nazir told ABC News in an interview, sitting in front of the mountains that separate Pakistan and Afghanistan. Maulvi Nazir is one of the three leaders, who head the Council of the Mujahedeen Union set up in February 2009, the Daily Times reports. Before joining the alliance, Nazir and other tribal leaders have been clashing with dominant Taliban commander in Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud, who is believed to be responsible for dozens of suicide attacks in Pakistan in 2008. We, Baitullah, Hafiz Gul Bahadur and all our friends reached the conclusion that … organizations have created mistrust and discrimination among us the CIA, Mossad, and especially Pakistani organizations, Nazir said. All these divisions, cracks and mistrust were created by the enemy. Baitullah, Hafiz Gul Bahadur and I understood this and reached this conclusion and put all differences aside and united against the enemy, he added, sitting in front of the mountains that separate Pakistan and Afghanistan. However, the Pakistani security agencies have expressed concerns over three strong Talibani leaders joining hands. We were dealing with three evils, but now were dealing with one big devil. Strategically, they all can now facilitate each other more effectively, a Pakistani intelligence agent in Waziristan sad. (ANI)
