Pakistan accuses India of ‘financing terror’
Islamabad, Sep 8 (IANS) Pakistan on Thursday accused India of “financing terrorism” on its soil, saying “open evidence is available of India’s involvement in subversive activities”.
The statement comes days after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in an obvious reference to Pakistan at the G20 Summit, said “One single nation in South Asia is spreading agents of terror in countries of our region”.
Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria, hitting back at Modi’s statement, said: “India is in fact that single nation.”
Zakaria said the confessional statement by arrested alleged Indian intelligence agent Kulbhushan Jadhav had “made it clear which country was spreading terrorism”.
Asked if Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would raise the issue of Jadhav at the upcoming UN General Assembly, the spokesman said: “The issue of Indian involvement will definitely be highlighted.
“The issue will be raised because of its direct links with incidents of terrorism in Pakistan,” he said.
