KABUL, Afghanistan, Feb 1, (Agencies): Afghanistan has given neighboring Pakistan confessions and other proof that the militants who carried out a recent series of attacks were trained in Pakistan and that Taleban leaders there are allowed to roam freely, the Afghan interior minister said Thursday.

Wais Ahemd Barmak told a news conference the evidence was presented at a meeting a day earlier in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad. Afghanistan’s spy chief, Masoom Stanekzai, also attended the meeting, along with senior Pakistani military and intelligence officials.

Stanekzai, addressing the same news conference, said Afghanistan laid out its proof and asked Pakistan to take action to prevent further attacks. There was no immediate comment from Pakistan, which has expressed condolences over the recent attacks.

A Pakistani delegation is due in Kabul on Saturday. Nearly 200 people have been killed over the past month in attacks claimed by the Taleban and a rival Islamic State affiliate. Afghan authorities say they detained one of the gunmen who attacked a military academy on Monday, killing 11 people in an assault claimed by IS.
