NEW YORK - Pakistans Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) is trying to persuade the insurgent Haqqani network to join Afghan peace talks, according to a media report. Wall Street Journal said the ISI, which has resisted American pressures to take on the Haqqani network, now wants the group to explore a role in Afghan peace talks. Officials and tribal elders with ties to the group said that the ISIs move suggested that Pakistan was unlikely to heed the US warning that it must act soon, the Journals correspondent in Islamabad reported Wednesday. A tribal elder from North Waziristan, who has contacts with Haqqanis inner circle, said the network has been alarmed by the persistent CIA drone strikes and the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.
