ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office spokesman said that it was yet another manifestation of undisguised hostility and global smear campaign being conducted by India against Pakistan. He stated this in response to a question regarding the statement made by the Indian Foreign Secretary at IFRI in Paris on 4 February
The spokesman said that Islamabad rejects the allegations as these were far from reality and patently mollified. He said that these remarks are also inconsistent with the established norms of diplomatic parlance and are in sharp variance with restraint and responsibility demonstrated by Pakistan. “It is Pakistan’s earnest desire to defuse tensions in South Asia and it has offered cooperation in dealing with the issue of terrorism to India” he said.
The spokesman further said: We intend to continue to demonstrate restraint and will refrain from commenting on India’s internal affairs or pursuit of policies that are inconsistent with the goals of promoting peace, security and stability in South Asia.
