ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Office said on Thursday that we do not have any evidence of the present of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Pakistan as there are some news reports.
“These are only media reports; we have not seen any evidence of their presence on our territory,” the Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam said in response to a question that whether a group of ISIS members has entered Pakistan.
“Our approach to terrorism is very clear. At the moment, our armed forces are in the middle of taking a very decisive action against the terrorists who have killed thousands of innocent Pakistanis and attacked our armed forces,” Aslam said at her weekly media briefing in Islamabad.
Earlier, according to media reports, a small group of ISIS militants led by an Afghan national distributed a booklet in parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal areas, particularly in Afghan refugee camps.
The booklet called upon people to support the IS which has occupied large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.
It said that the caliphate declared in parts of Iraq and Syria will expand to Khurasan, comprising Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries.
