India behind terrorism in Karachi, Balochistan: Foreign Office
ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) - The Foreign Office on Thursday said that India was financing terrorists to disturb law and order in Karachi and Balochistan.

Talking to newsmen during a weekly briefing, spokesperson Nafees Zakaria reiterated that India was involved in destabilizing Pakistan, citing the arrest of Indian spy Kalbhushan Yadav as clear evidence of this claim.

Responding to a question, he said that Pakistan was itself a victim of terrorism and had rendered countless sacrifices in the war on terror in last 15 years.

On the occasion, he also informed reporters that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had expressed good wishes for the health of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Pakistan has alleged on numerous times that India is supporting a separatist insurgency in Balochistan. During Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's last visit to United States two dossiers to this effect were also presented to US Secretary of State John Kerry.

However, India has consistently rejected these allegations, claiming that Pakistan has no material proof of Indian spying activities in Balochistan.
