Pakistan denies training camps

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday said that it did not have any camps on its soil, imparting training to militants operating in Jammu and Kashmir.

"There are no terrorist camps in Pakistan," Foreign Office spokesman Jalil Abbas Jilani said here, while commenting on External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh's statement that the terrorist camps are still operating and New Delhi had photographic evidence. Mr. Singh said in an interview with the BBC on Sunday that he told Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz that the terrorist camps had not been dismantled. "We have the photographs and I have told him that we can provide them with evidence," he added.

"Such charges will not help the ongoing peace process between the two South Asian countries," Mr. Jilani said. He described the accusations as the "legacy of a past era when relations between the two countries were tense and such politically-motivated charges were levelled against Pakistan.

"We have now embarked on a peace process. We are engaged in negotiations for [the] settlement of all outstanding issues and to seek a final settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir issue in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people..

"Sincerity to the ongoing peace process demands purposeful and result-oriented negotiations for the settlement of the Kashmir issue and [the] improvement of [the] human rights situation in the Valley," he added. — UNI
