India denies role in airport attack




FAISALABAD: Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan on Monday termed allegations of New Delhi’s involvement in attack on Karachi airport as ‘baseless’. “We condemn the terrorist attack at Karachi airport,” TCA Raghawan told a ceremony at the Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Pakistani authorities said they had recovered made-in-India weapons and medicines from the terrorists killed by the security forces at Karachi airport. Raghawan said India wants to establish amicable relations with Pakistan. “We condemn the terrorist attack in strongest terms. Such allegations are baseless and there is no truth in these,” the Indian envoy said. He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a productive meeting recently in New Delhi. He hoped the meeting will bear lasting results for the two countries. In a statement, Indian External Affairs Ministry said, “The attack on Karachi airport must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. The attack underlines the magnitude of danger that is posed by terrorism.” The ministry said, “If left unchecked, terrorism will continue to hinder efforts to promote national economic development, overcome poverty and provide people better quality of lives.”
