Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan's Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, held an audience at the Council for Foreign Relations on Tuesday to announce they have lied to the world for years.
Pakistan's advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs [not pictured] admitted Pakistan has been housing members of the Taliban leadership and their families.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Aziz openly admitted Pakistan has been supporting the Afghan Taliban leaders and their families.
No details were listed, but he made it clear that shelter and medical requirements have been offered to Taliban leaders and their family members, all of whom live safely in the country.
Aziz chose to admit the truth when the Council debated how to negotiate with the militant insurgents.
"[T]heir leadership is in Pakistan," Aziz shamelessly admitted, adding their presence could give Pakistan "some influence."
The shocking revelation came as calmly as if Aziz were simply commenting on the weather. He then proceeded to explain, in a bit more detail, what has been offered to the Taliban leaders.
"I think people who have dealt with this issue recognize that Taliban in the best of times ... did not listen to Pakistan always...and now we have some influence on them because their leadership is in Pakistan and they get some medical facilities, their families are here.
"So we can use those levers to pressurize them to say 'come to the table.'"
Without an ounce of shame, Sartaj Aziz admitted Pakistan has been housing and caring for Taliban leaders and their families (HONS).
On Thursday, a spokesman for Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs commented on Aziz's admission by refusing to comment further: "You need to see things in their correct perspective. I will not comment on the adviser's statement."
Meanwhile, the Taliban continues to refuse to participate in peace talks.
According to DunyaNews, the Taliban's head faction, led by Mullah Akhtar Mansour, released the following statement:
"On the one hand America is deploying fresh troops to Afghanistan, is carrying out airstrikes in various areas and partaking in night raids and on the other the Kabul administration has expanded operations in multiple provinces, displaced thousands of families from their homes in this cold winter and at the same time intensified propaganda about negotiations and Quadrilateral Coordination Group meetings.
"We reject all such rumors and unequivocally state that the esteemed leader of the Islamic Emirate has not authorized anyone to participate in this meeting and neither has the leadership Council of Islamic Emirate decided to partake in it."
The statement continues to say no negotiations can begin until "the occupation is ended, black lists eliminated and innocent prisoners [are] freed."
Meanwhile, reports indicate the Taliban will soon command the provinces of Helmand and Jowzjan as they continue their warpath known as their "spring offensive."
