Pakistan categorically rejects reports in a section of the media, based on a reported ISIS claim of responsibility for the heinous terrorist attack on a wedding party in Kabul, and implicating a Pakistani national.
Pakistan rejects these baseless allegations. It is important for the Media to discern the propaganda objectives of terrorist organisations aimed at creating misunderstandings.
Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. We have proactively and successfully taken action to uproot the scourge of terrorism. Pakistan will continue its efforts in the same spirit, in coordination with the regional and international partners.
