Pak denies PM’s terror charge
Islamabad, August 15
“Reports and assertions about presence of terror infrastructure in Pakistan are fabricated and false,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Naeem Khan told a press briefing here.
In his nationwide address from the historic Red Fort, the Prime Minister asked Pakistan to completely dismantle terrorist camps, adding that it had put some checks on terror activities but “half-hearted” efforts would not suffice.
“There is no terrorist infrastructure in Pakistan or any of the territories controlled by it,” spokesman Khan said without directly naming Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which has been the base camp of different militant organisations to operate in Kashmir.
Mr Khan, however, did not foresee any threats to the ongoing peace process, saying that leadership in the two countries was committed to carrying forward the dialogue and resolving all outstanding disputes for establishment of a durable peace in South Asia.
