As many as 52 terrorist training camps are reported to be existing in Pakistan and the Government is continuing to inform the international community of these developments, the Lok Sabha was informed on Wednesday.
Insurgent groups also continue to misuse Bangladesh territory for sanctuary, training camps, transportation or arms and transit and were being supported by intelligence agencies, both civil and military, of Bangladesh.
This was stated by Minister of State for External Affairs E Ahmed in reply to a written question.
He said there were reportedly 52 terrorist camps in Pakistan and the Government has, in its interaction at all levels, continuously stressed the fact that Islamabad needs to take effective steps to dismantle the infrastructure of support to terrorism on a permanent basis.
Government has been keeping the international community informed of development in this regard on a continuing basis as part of the global war against terrorism, he said, adding, Pakistan has always denied the presence of terrorist training camps.
On Bangladesh, he said a list of 172 insurgent group camps and 307 criminals and insurgents was handed over in the Director General level talks between BSF and Bangladesh Rifles last year but Dhaka continues to maintain a "policy of complete denial".
