Pakistan calls for international probe into Uri attack


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has offered all-out cooperation for an international and impartial probe into the Uri attack.

While talking to BBC Urdu, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said it has become India’s habit to blame Pakistan after every attack without even initiating an inquiry into it, so it has become imperative that an international inquiry is conducted over Uri attack.

Due to huge Indian military presence in the Occupied Kashmir, infiltration is impossible, he added.

India had blamed Pakistan over Patahankot and Mumbai attacks but failed to provide any concrete evidences, the Advisor said.

“Kashmiris are fighting for their rights in the disputed region and the attack on Indian army base has not benefitted them, in fact it helped diverted global attention from Indian atrocities,” he said.

This is not the first time that India has done this; during President Clinton’s visit to South Asia, an incident had taken place and India had accused Pakistan for it too, however, later it was revealed that it was an inside job, Sartaj Aziz said.
