The Afghan Intelligence – National Directorate of Security (NDS) chief Rahmatullah Nabil opposed with the signing of an agreement with Pakistan’s military intelligence – Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
Informed sources quoted by Hasht-e-Subh newspaper said Nabil was against the agreement on mutual intelligence cooperation with ISI.
This comes as sources privy to the development said Sunday that the agreement with ISI was signed by deputy NDS chief three days ago.
The agreement will allow ISI to train and equip the Afghan Intelligence – National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel.
The Afghan intelligence and ISI will jointly interrogate the detained insurgents based on the agreement.
This comes ISI chief Gen. Rizwan Akhtar secretly visited Kabul nearly two weeks ago to meet President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.
The latest agreement between Afghan government and ISI comes as the Afghan officials have long been criticizing ISI for supporting the insurgency in Afghanistan.
The conclusion of the agreement also sparked furore among the Afghan lawmakers who called on Lower House of the Parliament – Wolesi Jirga to summon the NDS chief Rahmatullah Nabil to brief the lawmakers regarding the agreement.
