Pak to India: Stop hurling unsubstantiated terror allegations

Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday accused India of “hurling unsubstantiated terror allegations” against it.

While speaking at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad, foreign office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said, “Terrorism is a problem for Pakistan and the world at large, not just India,” while urging India to do away with the practice of “hurling unsubstantiated terror allegations” against Pakistan.

Khalilullah said such a practice undermines efforts to eliminate terrorism from the region in a “collaborative manner”.

The spokesman said India and Pakistan are in touch to finalise the dates for foreign secretary level talks, Pakistan Today reported.

When asked to comment on the joint Indo-French statement on terrorism, he said that Pakistan’s sacrifices in the war against terrorism have been acknowledged by the world community.
