    Khar: No hidden agenda in Afghanistan (Video)

    KABUL (PAN): While reiterating stout support for the Afghan-led peace negotiations with the Taliban, Pakistan said on Wednesday it was not following a hidden agenda in the conflict-torn country.

    Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, on a fence-mending visit to Kabul, promised at a joint news conference with her Afghan counterpart that Islamabad would lend its weight to the reconciliation programme as long as it was spearheaded by Afghans.

    Discounting a classified US military report that Pakistan aided the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan, she said: "We can disregard this as a potentially strategic leak.” The minister characterised the document as “old wine in an even older bottle”.
