Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is allegedly pressuring Afghan Taliban members to shun US-backed peace talks aimed at ending the war in Afghanistan, the Wall Street Journal reported. Citing unnamed Taliban commanders and US officials, the newspaper said the ISI has encouraged Afghan insurgents to step up attacks, including on civilians, and resist surrender or peace talks. The ISI wants to arrest commanders who are not obeying [ISI] orders, an unnamed Taliban commander in Kunar province told the Journal. It was not clear how senior this commander was and why he agreed to share this information.
