Pakistan strongly rejects the remarks made by Indian Home Secretary R. K. Singh alleging that “prima facie evidence suggests that the militants who attacked the members of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were from across the border, they were probably from Pakistan”. Pakistan also rejects the statement made by Defence Minister A. K. Antony in the Rajya Sabha accusing the Special Services Group of Pakistan Army of beheading two Indian soldiers on the Line of Control on January 08, 2013.
We feel that this trend of making irresponsible statements and knee-jerk reactions by senior Indian Government functionaries have the potential of undermining the efforts made by both sides to normalize relation between the two countries.
Pakistan, which is itself a victim of terrorism and has rendered immense sacrifices in its efforts against this menace, condemns such actions of terrorism in the strongest possible terms and calls upon the Government of India to carry out a thorough investigation into the incident before leveling such accusations which are counterproductive and serve no purpose.
Pakistan remains committed to discussing and resolving all outstanding issues with India through a meaningful dialogue.
