Pakistan urges India to do away with practice of terror allegations

ISLAMABAD, Jan 28 (KUNA) — Pakistan on Thursday urged India to do away with practice of hurling unsubstantiated terror allegations against Pakistan.
In his weekly news briefing in federal capital Islamabad, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said that such a practice undermines efforts to eliminate terrorism from the region in a collaborative manner.
He reminded that terrorism is not only India’s problem but also that of Pakistan and the world at large.
Commenting on joint Indian-French statement on terrorism, the spokesperson said Pakistan has rendered enormous sacrifices in the war on terror to make the world a safer place and world community has also appreciated these sacrifices. India and Pakistan are in touch to finalize the dates for foreign secretary level talks, he added.
The statement by the Foreign Office came after accusations by Indian officials regarding the involvement of militants in Pakistan in the recent Pathankot Airbase attack in India. (end) sbk.tg
