Taliban getting support from Pakistani side:Musharraf Islamabad, PTI:
There is trans-border cooperation in militant activities, with the base in Afghanistan but support from Pakistan. We need to isolate the two, and deal with whatever is happening from Pakistan on our side...

Admitting that Taliban militants were getting "support" from Pakistani side, President Prevez Musharraf has said that US-led coalition's strategy to stabilise Afghanistan was failing.

"There is trans-border cooperation in militant activities, with the base in Afghanistan but support from Pakistan. We need to isolate the two, and deal with whatever is happening from Pakistan on our side, while the main action will have to be taken in Afghanistan to counter militancy," Musharraf told Channel-4.

In the interview telecast yesterday, Musharraf also acknowledged that Quetta in Balochistan has become a "hotbed" for Taliban activities but said the base of the militia was in Afghanistan
