Pakistan rejects Indian home minister’s remarks on infiltration

Islamabad–Pakistan dismissed as “baseless and unfounded” remarks by Indian Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that Islamabad is “helping terrorists” to enter Indian territory.

Pakistan angrily rejected Shinde’s remarks Monday that India has information that Pakistan is helping terrorists to infiltrate and asked the Indian minister to share information with Pakistan, reported Xinhua citing local media reports.

“We totally reject these allegations and insinuations,” the Pakistani foreign ministry said.

“They are totally baseless and unfounded. Such unsubstantiated statements are not very helpful in creating a conducive environment necessary for improving the relationship between our two countries,” a spokesman said.

The spokesman also said that if the Indian home minister has any information or evidence, he is most welcomed to share it with Pakistani authorities.—IANS
