Taleban promises Pakistan its support in any war with India...
The Taleban has promised Pakistan its support in any future war with India because of the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Pakistan and India have become traditional foes over many years and have fought many wars against each other since partition in 1948.
However, analysts have claimed that the offer by the Taleban is a ruse to take the heat off the terrorist group and inflame anti-Hindu sentiments, and to draw support away from Islamabad's fight against Al-Qaida and Taleban militants in the tribal regions close to Afghanistan.
The US is proposing to negotiate withn those involved to come up with plans to avoid any future conflict in the volatile region.
