Taliban's Entire Leadership Is Based In Pakistan, Reveals Terror Outfit's Chief Negotiator Mullah BaradarPakistani PM Imran Khan (pic via Twitter)

In another embarrassing development for the Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan-led Islamic Republic of Pakistan, terrorist outfit Taliban's chief negotiator for the intra-Afghan peace talks Mullah Baradar has revealed in a video that the outfit's entire leadership is based in Pakistan, reports Times of India.

A series of videos had emerged on Thursday (24 December), in which visiting Taliban representatives, led by Baradar in Pakistan, could be seen acknowledging the terrorist outfit's continued activities in the Pakistani territory.

Issuing a statement on the development, Afghanistan government has confirmed that Baradar and others in the video could be seen visiting Pakistan based training camps of Taliban and called it a serious challenge to the goal of sustainable peace.

The development has also caused worry for India, as the confirmation of the presence of Taliban's leadership and its training camps on Pakistani soil has exacerbated New Delhi’s concerns about the role of ISI in the Afghan peace process.
