US trying to blame Pakistan for its failures in Afghanistan: Foreign office
In a weekly briefing, Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria dismissed the remarks made by a top US military official regarding Pakistan’s contributions to the war against terrorism.
The official also rubbished the allegations by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford who insinuated that the Pakistan's top spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence had links with terrorist groups.
Pakistani forces took indiscriminate action against terrorists’ hideouts on its soil and cleared the areas of militants, the spokesman said.
The former US Secretary of State’s statement on Pakistan’s policy regarding terrorism was on record, he added.
Zakaria continued that the issue of human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir was being taken up by the Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif who was currently in US.
