Shortly after the bombing, State Department spokesman Ian Kelly described claims of US involvement in the attack as “completely false.”
The official condemnations by foreign countries came while Jundullah group has not been designated as a terrorist organization, neither has it been place on a terrorism blacklists.
The group is generally described by Western countries as an “opposition group” or “militant” faction.
Meanwhile, former army chief of staff in Pakistan General Aslam Beg, speaking to The Associated Press, said that the border village of Mand has been used as a staging point for US contacts with Jundullah.
“US aid also was funneled into the region through the Pakistani ports of Kot Kalmat and Jiwani,” he told AP.
In a separate article published by The Time, former Middle East case officer at the Central Intelligence Agency Robert Baer said the CIA had “sporadic” contact with Jundullah.
“American intelligence has also had contact with Jundullah. But that contact, as Iran almost certainly knows, was confined to intelligence-gathering on the country,” wrote Baer.
In his article, the former CIA official also claimed that “a relationship with Jundullah was never formalized, and contact was sporadic.”
