The meeting of the five intelligence chiefs is one of many recent engagements of spymasters after the Taliban takeover of Kabul on August 15.

The CIA Chief William Burns visited Pakistan and India this week to discuss the situation in Afghaistan. In Pakistan, he met with the Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and the DG-ISI Gen Hameed while in India he held talks with the National Security Advisor.

Last Saturday, Gen Faiz Hameed landed in Afghanistan to take up hosts of issues with the Taliban. His visit caused concerns in New Delhi. The Taliban leadership reassured Gen Hameed that they would not allow any organization, including the banned TTP, to use Afghanistan’s soil to launched terror attacks in Pakistan.
