India funding terror: Pakistan minister

Islamabad, Aug 20 (IANS) Pakistan Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar has accused India of financing terror attacks in Pakistan, including the suicide bombing that recently killed the Punjab home minister.

He also accused India of shelling innocent civilians in the villages along the international border, news portal reported.

The comments, that come ahead of the National Security Advisor (NSA)-level talks to be held in New Delhi on August 23, are expected to further inflame tensions between the two countries.

India is talking about peace but promoting terror, he told Pakistan Rangers at a passing-out parade at their Mandi Bahauddin academy.

“Who is behind terrorist attacks (in Pakistan)? It is very clear to us. There are elements within us who target innocent people for money they receive from our enemy… this is the same enemy who we come face to face (with) courageously at the Wagah border daily,” the report online news agency as saying.

“(Our enemy) talks of friendship on the one hand and on the other, it fires shells on civilians along the LoC and working boundaries. We have to win the war on terror at any costs.”

“The Attock blast probe will take some more time but security agencies are closing in on the suspects. The culprits are on our target, we are just waiting for completion of the investigation and they will be brought to justice soon,” he said.

Hundreds of civilians have been killed in cross-border skirmishes between Indian and Pakistani troops at the line of control in the disputed Kashmir region since 1948.

Both counties have been blaming each other for violation of ceasefire accords and now each are accusing the other of financing terrorism.
