Washington, July 28 (ANI): The Inter State Intelligence (ISI) and the Pakistan Army play a significant role in influencing Islamabad's policies towards New Delhi despite the fact the two have always denied any role in government's functioning, a report said.
Stratfor, the global think tank, in its report said: "The ISI and the army already exert a significant influence on policy towards India, whether they have a formal seat or not".
Referring to the alleged meeting of Indian officials with the ISI chief Shuja Pasha on July 3, the report said that it was an important meeting which could have an effect on the region.
"Regardless of what was said during the July 3 meeting, the impromptu meeting itself was a significant one," it said.
The report said that the dynamics of the region were fast changing, which may be the prime reason behind the ISI chief calling the unplanned meeting.
"The last thing India wants to see is the US ease up on Pakistan, should a terrorist attack take place in India, its ability to hold Pakistan responsible would be severely compromised. This is why the Indians are not buying reports of Pakistan targeting terrorist groups.
The Pakistanis know they cannot be held responsible. These are the newly emerging dynamics of the region, and they may well be the reason the ISI chief held his impromptu get-together with the Indian military attaches," the report said. (ANI)
