ISLAMABAD - While not denying the news, official spokesman of the Foreign Office Thursday declined to comment on reports about Ambassador to USA Hussain Haqqanis letter written to Foreign Secretary as well as the Director General of ISI saying, It is purely an official matter. During the weekly Foreign Office briefing, spokesman Abdul Basit was asked whether or not the Ambassador had deliberately leaked the official classified communication as was reported in a section of media. Thus by staying mum over the issue it could be implied that the spokesperson did not deny the leak as was reported. It transpired from the briefing that US AfPak policy for Afghanistan and Pakistan would be amongst the most contentious issues to figure in the scheduled meeting between President Asif Ali Zardari and his US counterpart Barack Hussain Obama in New York on September 24. President Zardari had already publicly denounced the US AfPak policy ahead of proceeding on his US visit. Thus it has given credence to the impression that the nearly six-month-old US AfPak policy has already has many question marks. Answering a question, the spokesman said that Pakistan has already rejected the terminology of AfPak and conveyed its point of view to Washington. Since Pakistan and Afghanistan are two different countries with different cultures and situations, therefore Pakistan has rejected this terminology, Basit said. He said on the Western border there are various problems including terrorism and added that Pakistan has been taking steps to tackle these issues very seriously. The spokesman said Pakistan would not allow any foreign troops including the US to launch any military operation inside Pakistan. He said Pakistani forces are capable to fight the terrorists and militants and they had proved it in the recent operation against such elements in Swat and other areas. He rejected the allegation on Pakistan for causing instability in Afghanistan and said in fact Pakistan itself is suffering from the spill over effect of terrorism from Afghanistan. However, he said Pakistan has also stood for stability and peace in Afghanistan that is vital for the stability of the region as well. Regarding Pak-India talks in New York, he said Pakistan has various issues with India to be solved for lasting peace in the region. Pakistan and India are still working to finalise the date and place for the meeting at foreign secretary-level before the UN General Assembly session. He said, Pakistan strongly believes for just and fair resolution of Kashmir issue that is vital for peace in South Asia and Pakistan will take up the issue at international level. He said Pakistan would take the Kashmir issue in New York adding, It will be our utmost effort to gain further support of the international community on the issue. Answering a question regarding threat to the Pakistans nuclear programme from Al-Qaeda, the spokesman said, Pakistan is confident and conscious of its strategic assets and we have proper arrangements for their safety and security under an effective system. Replying to a question about explanation on the statement of American ambassador to Pakistan regarding provision of dollars three billion financial assistance, the spokesman said the Ministry of Finance has issued comprehensive clarification on his issue. On the question of presence of Blackwater security agency in Pakistan, the spokesman quoting the statement of Interior Ministry said there is no presence of Blackwater in Pakistan. Replying to a question about accountability of foreign assistance, the spokesman said Pakistan is not against transparency. He said, We want that the aid should be utilised effectively and administrative cost should be reduced so that the people could get maximum benefit from the foreign assistance.
