Karzai urges Ghani to scrap NDS-ISI deal

Karzai urges Ghani to scrap NDS-ISI deal

May 21, 2015 - 01:21

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Former president Hamid Karzai on Wednesday urged his successor Ashraf Ghani to scrap last week’s agreement signed between the premier intelligence agencies of Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon.

The Afghan spy service, the National Directorate of Security or NDSinfo-icon last week concluded a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence or ISIinfo-icon to share intelligence about possible insurgent attacks on their respective sides of the border.

In a statement from his office in Kabul, Karzai said he was concerned about the document and demanded President Ghani avoid signing any document that harmed Afghanistan national interest.

The reaction from Karzai comes two days after the NDS spokesman told reporters in Kabul that the two spy agencies would share information with each other in technical areas under the MoU.

Meanwhile, Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members also mounted pressure on President Ghani to scrap the deal. They summoned top NDS officials as well as the national security advisor to appear before the lower house.
