Pakistan, Taliban still together: Krishna

"They are a tandem," External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

"They are still together," Krishna said suggesting the Pakistan government has been unable to break the ties between its spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Krishna also said India felt "vindicated" after former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf said recently that some US anti-terrorism aid had been used to bolster traditional defences against India.

"We have always been cautioning our friends, the United States, that please, please for heaven's sake make sure that the aid you are giving to Pakistan is not directed and misappropriated to be used against India, a friend of yours," the foreign minister said.
