Washington, Oct. 2 (ANI): Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency has categorically denied any links with the Taliban.

The Daily Times quoted ISI Director General Lt. Gen. Ahmad Shuja Pasha as saying that the ISI is a professional agency and does not have links with any militant outfit, including the Taliban.

Lt. Gen. Pasha's remarks came during a meeting with CIA chief Leon Panetta, National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. James Jones and other officials in Washington.

Meanwhile, US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry has said that 'ISI-Taliban nexus is troubling' and the US wants to fix it.

"From our side, it has been difficult to build trust with Pakistan's military and intelligence services over the years ecause our interests have not always been aligned and because ties between the ISI and Taliban remain troubling. We need to fix his relationship," Kerry said. (ANI)
