‘ISI, NDS agreement useless exercise as war ranges on’

‘ISI, NDS agreement useless exercise as war ranges on’

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Civil Movement for Social Justice on Thursday termed the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the spy-services of Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon a useless exercise and warned masses might lose trust over the country’s intelligence agency.

Earlier, the Afghan spy agency confirmed it had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence or ISIinfo-icon to share intelligence against terrorists on their respective sides of the border.

National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) spokesman Hasibullah Siddiqui told reporters in Kabul both the intelligence agencies would share intelligence gathering, technical information and inform each other about possible security threats under the agreement.

He said a similar agreement in 2008-9 could not yield positive results as areas of cooperation between the two spy networks remained ambiguous in the earlier agreement.

Ahmad Zaki, member of the Civil Movement for Social Justice, told reporters that before inking MoU the government should have taken masses into confidence.

He said the MoU should have signed after Pakistan’s adopted practical measures to improve security and economy.

On Wednesday some Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members considered signing MoU between the mainstream intelligence agencies of Pakistan and Afghanistan against “national interest and asked the president to revoke the deal.”
