Deep connection between ISKP, Taliban, says report

US President Joe Biden has said that it is in the Taliban interest to keep Islamic State Khorasan out of Afghanistan. However, the connection between the two terror groups is deep as they share the same enemy --Washington, reported Australian ABC News.
   
In a report in ABC News, Australian journalist Stan Grant the Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP), Al Qaeda and the Taliban are different threads of the same tapestry.

As the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, experts are fearful that the country will again become the safe haven of terrorists.
   
Recently, a terror attack rocked Kabul on August 26, killing scores of people. ISKP claimed responsibility for the attack.
   
According to Terrorism analyst, Sajjan Gohel, the Taliban will use the ISKP attack and the deaths of innocent Afghans to its own end, cracking down even further on its own people.
   
As he points out in an article in Foreign Policy magazine: "Islamic State-Khorasan and the Taliban may resume their squabbles, but they also have more in common with each other than they have differences. The perennial losers in this remain the Afghan people."
   
Elaborating on the "deep connection" between the two groups, Australian journalist Stan Grant said ISKP and Taliban also share a similar network.
   
The founding leader of Islamic State Khorasan was Hafiz Saeed Khan, a veteran Pakistani Taliban leader.
   
"Yes, the two groups have clashed often violently and they may indeed fight a turf war for control but they share a common enemy: the United States," Grant said in a report in ABC.
