The Untied States Assistant Secretary of State Richard A Boucher has termed the reported support of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) to Taliban militants as groundless and rejected it, a local newspaper reported Tuesday.

"There is no logic that we or any other NATO member help Taliban. Taliban kill us, they kill you Afghans, they kill Pakistani and Europeans," daily Outlook quoted Boucher as saying.

Reports emanating from Afghan circles said last week that ISAF troops drooped arms and munitions to Taliban insurgents in Arghandab of southern Kandahar province.

A parliamentarian, Zalmai Mujadadi, told reporters early in the weekend that the international troops intentionally provided the arms and munitions to militants

However, NATO's spokesman Carlos Branco said on weekend that it was a mistake and the case is under investigation.

Afghanistan intelligence chief Amrullah Salih also rejected the report, adding unintentionally a small of food stuff and munitions was dropped to the area and went to Taliban hand.
