LoC: Pak offers ‘third party’ inquiry

- January 09, 2013 - Updated 1550 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that Pakistan was not involved in the killings of Indian soldiers.


During an interview with an Indian TV channel, the Pakistan foreign minister said that the incident took place on the other side of the border and India should investigate the matter.


Khar said that Pakistan has completed the probe regarding the Line of Control incident and the country also offered to have inquiry done from a third party.


Lance Naik Aslam of Pakistan army was martyred in the incident, she added.


Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Salman Bashir also brushed aside the allegations being leveled against Pakistan, saying Islamabad was prepared to hold investigations through the UN Military Observer Group on the recent ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC).


Asserting that Pakistan was committed to a constructive, sustained and result-oriented process of engagement with India, Bashir said it was "important that both sides make serious efforts in maintaining this improvement and avoid negative propaganda".


Pakistan "strongly rejects the Indian allegation of an attack across the LoC on its military patrol in which two Indian soldiers were claimed to have been killed. These are baseless and unfounded allegations," Bashir said.


He said "Pakistan is prepared to hold investigations through the United Nations Military Observer Group for India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) on the recent ceasefire violations on the Line of Control."

To hell with india, why do we continue to accept UN intervention do you think they are neutral. And the Hindu elite are hell bent on spreading hatred against Pakistan as we have experienced for 65 years. Enough with this slave mentality.

Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.No one can trust Pakistan any more. Let me share some facts . The Kargil attack. Bin Ladin being found in Pakistan, Ajmal Kassab . You cannot lie for ever. These facts are known to the whole world. I would like India to isolate Pakistan it should stop all trade and free movement between the two countries. There will never be any friendship between the two countries. We should move on and not waste our time with the terrorist state.

Of course she will ask her Godfather Uncle Sham to help.

This is clearly a provocation, but I find it hard to believe that the Pakistan Army would choose this time and method. The Taliban are the people who slit throats and decapitate their enemies, and they recently threatened to initiate their own jihad in Kashmir. See

Madam Foreign Minister , why third party? Make a trip to India,you already charmed them with your style & youthful elegance when you visited India last time - they will hush up, glamour they worship, take a hint from Bollywood silver screen gods, who sell them dreams.

Dont be so apologetic and submissive. Rather put the blame on American Drones.
