Pakistan promoting ‘export of terror’: British PM

59

Bangalore: Visiting British Prime Minister David Came-ron on July 28 suggested that Pakistan is promoting the “export of terror” in Afghanistan and around the world.

In words likely to be greeted with alarm in Islamabad, Cameron also suggested that Pakistan had links with terrorist groups, and was guilty of double-dealing by aligning itself with both the West and the forces it was opposing.

Asked by a member of the audience why Britain and the United States were pouring money into Pakistan, given suggestions that it was linked to the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, Cameron said it is an issue he is extremely concerned about, and added that he had already discussed the problem with US President Barack Obama and would do so also with Manmohan Singh, his Indian  counterpart.
