ISLAMABAD Utterly alarmed by the controversial statements by the heads of governments of France and Germany, the Foreign Office on Monday called their representatives on Monday and recorded its protest. Foreign Office summoned the German and French Ambassadors and told them the government and people of Pakistan strongly condemn and reject the statements separately given by the President of France and Chancellor of Germany. Today, the Foreign Office conveyed the Government and the people of Pakistans disappointment separately to the Ambassador of France and the German Charge d Affaires in Islamabad at the reported remarks by President Nicolas Sarkozy and Chancellor Angela Merkel relating to Pakistan following their meeting with the Indian Prime Minister in New Delhi and Berlin, respectively, the Foreign Office stated officially on Monday. Authorities in Foreign Office underlined Pakistan was surprised and disappointed at the reported remarks made by the two leaders. Both France and Germany were well aware of the great sacrifices being rendered by Pakistan in the ongoing fight against terrorism. Therefore, incriminating Pakistan in the context of terrorism was unjustified and uncalled for, authorities in Ministry of Foreign Affairs told the Ambassadors of Germany and France in Pakistan. However, German Ambassador is said to have told the Foreign Office that Chancellors remarks had been misquoted. Insiders told The Nation that Foreign Office was not convinced by German Charge d Affairs who tried his best to prove that German Chancellor was misquoted. In a bid to diffuse tension, he told Foreign Office that Markels statement was not Pakistan specific, however, he badly failed to convince Pakistani authorities. Chancellor Merkel had outlined general principles of Germanys counter terrorism policy. Her remarks were not Pakistan specific, German Charge d Affairs told authorities in Foreign Office when called on Monday. It is pertinent to mention here that German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a joint press conference with visiting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh accused Pakistan two days back on Saturday that Pakistan was trying to solve political issues in the guise of terrorism, and stated that Pakistan will have to change its policies. During the same press conference, Merkel went on saying said that it was time to make Pakistan clear that terror is not a means to an end when it comes to solving political problems. Government and people of Pakistan were surprised after they came to know about controversial remarks by the head of a European country. A wave of disappointment and anger has been spread across the power corridors in Islamabad. Followed by these controversial remarks by the heads of Germany and France, Foreign Office summoned the representatives of two countries and recorded protest.
