Pak's ISI continues to covertly support Taliban in border region: US media report

 A US media report has claimed that Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI continues to covertly support the Taliban in the border region. 

The Washington Times' investigative story alleged that Taliban terrorists from Afghanistan travel freely to a Pakistani army garrison in Quetta where they meet with military and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officials.

The report says Killa Abdullah, a small border district about 44 miles from Quetta, is another area where the Taliban is working with the ISI. 

Within that district, an area known as Chaman bordering Afghanistan is also a Taliban hub, where terrorists operate openly and are known to local residents as Talibs.

The Washington Times said that the ISI also conducts security patrols to facilitate Taliban transit along the main highway to Kuchlak.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon on Thursday said that US wants Pakistan to take more steps against terrorism in the region.
