NEW DELHI: Rejecting Pakistan Foreign Advisor’s charges, India on Monday said that Islamabad was trying to paper over the challenges posed to the peace and stability from terror havens on the Southern side of the Durand Line.
“We all know, who is upstreaming terrorism and who endeavours to downstream terrorism. It is certainly not India,” said an MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin.
On Sunday, just a day before US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Islamabad for talks, Pakistan PM’s National Security and Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz told a Pakistani news channel that India was carrying out attacks using Afghanistan as a platform.
“We also know that the main threat to peace and security in Afghanistan comes from terrorism.
“Therefore, don’t be misled by those, who intend to obscure the challenge that (terrorist) safe havens pose to peace and security in the region,” the MEA spokesperson added.
Sartaj Aziz had also alleged that the Narendra Modi Government was adopting a non-cooperative approach to resolve the Kashmir issue.
