News A fortnightly column on the high politics of the Af-Pak regionthe fulcrum of global power play in Indias neighbourhood Cross-border Fire Delhi and Kabul have been complaining for decades about the sources of cross-border terrorism from Pakistani soil Militant groups like the Lashkar-e-Toibathe Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Network have long enjoyed unstinting patronage of the Pakistan army Now Rawalpindi is the one protesting against external sanctuaries for forces fighting the Pakistani state Pakistan is accusing the United States and its allies of turning a blind eye to the activities of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Afghan soil Rawalpindi sees the TTP as the principal security threat to Pakistan The TTPwhich brings together various Islamist outfits in Pakistan under one umbrellahas begun to operate from across the border after the US wound up some border posts in northeastern Afghanistan The Pakistan armys efforts to win over the TTP in recent years have failed as the organisation mounts increasingly bold attacks on Pakistans security forces on the border and deep inside Pakistans urban heartland Over the last weekendIslamabads envoy to WashingtonSherry Rehmanaccused the US of failing to act against the TTPs cross-border activitiesdespite the Pakistan army providing intelligence Rehman counted 52 such occasions in recent months The US and its allies were swift in their rebuttal of Rehmans charges Whenever they were notified in advancethe statement from the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan (ISAF) saidmilitary units were dispatched to deal with the TTP activity Washington is angry at Rehmans suggestion of a moral equivalence between the Pakistan armys deliberate support to the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Networkand the TTPs sanctuaries in a difficult borderland that Kabul and its international allies dont control Unlike the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Networkwhich enjoy the support of the Pakistan armyneither Kabul nor Washington have any reason to support the TTPwhich has organised terror attacks in both Afghanistan and the US The US has been pressing the Pakistan army to act against the Haqqani Network over the last two years A reluctant Rawalpindi appears to be countering that pressure by raising the noise on cross-border attacks from Afghanistan The latest barrage of exchanges between US and Pakistani officials has dampened hopes for an upswing in bilateral relations after Washington apologised for an attack last November on a Pakistani border post that killed 24 men and Islamabad lifted the blockade on NATOs overland supply routes into Afghanistan ISI-CIA talks The US and Pakistan will make yet another effort to resolve current tensions over cross-border attacks this week at the meetings between the heads of their intelligence agencies in Washington Lieutenant General Zaheer-ul-Islamthe ISI bossis in Washington for talks with the CIA Director David Petraeus This is the first visit by Islam after he was appointed to run the ISI last March During the talksPetraeus is expected to renew the demand that the Pakistan army launch operations against the Haqqani Networkwhich is seen as a big threat to the stability of Afghanistanas the US begins to downsize its military footprint in Afghanistan Last yeara top American official had described the Haqqani Network as a veritable arm of the ISI and the Pakistan army Rawalpindi makes no secret of its desire to instal the Haqqani Network into new political structures in Kabul after the withdrawal of American forces The US Congress has been pressing the Obama administration to declare the Haqqani Network an international terrorist organisation The White House is more than eager to turn up the heat on the Haqqani Networkbut is aware that designating it a terrorist organisation would deepen the divide with Rawalpindi and reduce the prospects for cooperation with the Pakistan army Taliban Protest It is not often that the Afghan Taliban supports its adversaries in Kabul and Washington and criticises its patrons in Rawalpindi That is precisely what the leadership of the Afghan Taliban did last week The Taliban joined the Hamid Karzai government in Kabul and the NATO forces in condemning the Pakistan armys rocket and artillery attacks on Afghan villages across the Durand Line that separates the two countries Rawalpindi says it is targetting the sanctuaries of the TTP Kabul says the attacks are indiscriminate and displacing thousands of people According to media reportsthe Taliban has declared that the Pakistan armys attacks on Afghan soil are unacceptable Although it survives on Rawalpindis supportthe Taliban might have good reasons to publicly affirm its independence and nationalism The writer is
