Statesman Report

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmood Monday briefed envoys of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) about the ‘Dossier on Indian state Sponsorship of Terrorism’.

The envoys were apprised of India’s involvement in planning, promoting, aiding, abetting, financing and execution of terrorist activities in Pakistan, the Foreign Office spokesperson in a press release said.

The dossiers containing irrefutable evidence of India’s state sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan were handed over to them.

“Pakistan will continue to highlight to the international community India’s state sponsorship of terrorism and destabilizing activities against Pakistan,” the press release added, reports APP.

Earlier in the day, the FO rejected a statement by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs denying the "irrefutable evidence" provided by Islamabad regarding India's sponsorship of terrorism in the country.

"Fully exposed, India has typically resorted to sophistry, obfuscation and re-fabrication. Bland denials and regurgitation of an old litany of charges, however, will not change facts," a statement by FO spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudri said.

A day earlier, India had called the dossier presented by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and military spokesman Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar a "propaganda exercise".

“The so-called claims of ‘proof’ against India enjoy no credibility, are fabricated and represent figments of imagination,” Hindustan Times quoted the Indian external affairs ministry spokesperson as saying.

In a statement released on Monday, the FO spokesperson said: "The dossier presented by Pakistan extensively documents India’s active planning, promoting, aiding, abetting, financing and execution of terrorist activities against Pakistan.
