Agenten-Affäre belastet Deutschlands Beziehungen zu Pakistan

admin < 1 min

Spiegel online, 23 January 2012
Pakistani authorities have closed what they call a German intelligence office in Peshawar and claim that three persons arrested there (flown out to Germany meanwhile) have used business cards and a car of German governmental development agency GIZ. Spiegel says that a BND office exists in Peshawar since years. GIZ says the three are not their personnel and are worried about the possible (mis)use of GIZ symbols. The development ministry, asked whether it had known whether BND people use a GIZ cover, says ‘ask the intelligence’. Another question: Is this Pakistani revenge for the German role in opening a channel with the Taleban around the ISI?
