Top US Commander denies Karzai’s 'America, Taliban working together' claim

A top US commander in Afghanistan, General Joseph Dunford, rejected the allegations made by afghan president's claim that US and the Taliban are working together to spread fear among Afghans as "categorically false," CBS News reports.

Karzai said in a television speech that the two suicide bombings that killed 19 people on Saturday were proof the US and the Taliban are 'trying to frighten Afghans into thinking that if the foreigners are not in Afghanistan, we would be facing these sorts of incidents.'

Karzai''s accusations came out of the blue, in the middle of a televised address honoring Afghan women, an address his office scheduled just Saturday, right in the middle of a visit by U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

He claimed that the US and the Taliban continue to hold "daily negotiations" in the Gulf state of Qatar, working in coordination to destabilize Afghanistan, the report said.
