Pak worried of US military surge in Afghan: Report

Written by: Staff

Washington, Jan 5: Pakistan is increasingly worried of the US military buildup in Afghanistan fearing that an additional troops there would push militants into its territory, a media report said.

According to Washington Post, "Residents in border areas such as the violence-plagued city of Peshawar worry that a tide of militants could flee Afghanistan to seek targets in Pakistan

"Doubts linger among Pakistani security officials about the Americans' ability to intensify the campaign against the Taliban without further destabilise Pakistan," the daily said.

"With a surge in American troops across the border, the militants facing pressure could come to our place, which will destroy peace and stability," Haji Adam Khan, the top official in Qilla Abdullah was quoted as saying.

However, US officials disagree with that assessment, reflecting the undercurrents of mistrust between the United States and Pakistan, the daily added.
