Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has sought to convince the United Arab Emirates that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) were behind the attack in southern Kandahar that killed five UAE diplomats and injured the ambassador, said ex-Afghan intelligence official on Sunday.
"Uncertainties in the attack has come through internal divisions and government attempts to relate the incident to Haqqani Network and the Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence," said Jawid Kohistani, a former Afghan military, and intelligence official.
Kohistani, however, said that it seems difficult to convince UAE over the incident, considering the information and the connections as they have.
On Saturday, President Ghani departed on an Official visit to UAE at the head of a high-ranking government delegation.
In a released statement of the Presidential Palace, it was noted that Ghani will meet with high-ranking officials in the UAE and discuss strengthening of ties between the two countries, cooperation, and security issues.
The statement also mentioned that Ghani will pass on his condolences to the people and government of the UAE over the death of their diplomats in a blast in Kandahar last month.
It comes a week after, Daoud Gulzar, the head of the delegation for probing the incident said that their investigation is finalized and soon they will share the results publicly.
