Pakistan has denied the LTTE's charge that it has links with a Sri Lankan Muslim militant group called "Jihad".

In a letter to the Colombo-based Daily Mirror a spokesman of the Pakistan High Commission said: "There is not one iota of truth in these allegations".

"Pakistan is strictly against interfering in the internal matters of other sovereign states. Pakistan has always supported Sri Lanka in its efforts to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity," spokesman Zahoor Barlas said.
