IndiaKayani terms Indian allegations as unfortunate, provocative

RAWALPINDI: Army chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani on Friday dismissed allegations leveled by Indian military leadership that Pakistani army and ISI support terrorism, and termed them as “unfortunate, unfounded and provocative.”

In a press statement issued by the inter-services public relation (ISPR) department, the army chief said that Pakistan was also concerned about the continued violations of the Line of Control (LoC).

The cease fire was proposed by Pakistan and agreed to by the two countries in 2003, he recalled, adding that instead of hurling such baseless accusations, India would be well advised to respond positively to Pakistan’s suggestion for holding joint or impartial investigation into the LoC incidents, preferably by the United Nations.

Kayani said Pakistan army was exercising restraint but the same should in no way be used as a pretext for leveling such baseless allegations that vitiate prospects of regional peace.

The army chief said that Pakistan army is fully supportive of the peace process.
