Pakistan on Thursday accused India of “hurling unsubstantiated terror allegations” at it, saying it undermines efforts to eliminate terrorism from the region in a “collaborative manner”.
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.”
Asked about allegations against Pakistan whenever there is a terror attack, he urged 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”.
India has sought action by Pakistan on the evidence provided for apprehending the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists suspected to have been involved in the January 2 Pathankot air base attack.
Asked to comment on the joint Indo-French statement on terrorism, he said Pakistan has given a lot of sacrifices in the war against terror to make the world a safer place. Khalilullah said it has been appreciated by the world.
