Washington, Aug 16: The al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden is probably hiding in the remote mountainous regions of Pakistan, claimed one top US general.
He said, "capturing or killing Osama bin Laden is still a very, very important task for all of those who are engaged in counter terrorism around the world."
The US general also informed that there is hardly to be any possibility of peace talks with the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar.
"But there can be low and mid-level reintegration and, indeed, some fracturing of the senior leadership that could be really defined as reconciliation," he said.
According to sources, US was not facing some kind of a monolithic Taliban enemy in the region, but it is a syndicate of terrorist outfits.
He stated that US generally face Afghan Taliban in the southern part of the country and Haqqani network in the eastern part.
