No effective government functioning in Pak, reacts Krishna

November 03, 2009 15:49 IST
India on Tuesday rubbished Pakistan's allegations that it was fomenting trouble in the neighbouring country, saying it has nothing to do with their internal developments which are of 'their own making.'

"We have absolutely nothing to do with whatever is happening in Balochistan or whatever is happening within Pakistan. I think it is their own making," Union External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said.

The minister was of the view that there is 'total confusion' in Pakistan and that he did not think that there is any effective government functioning there.

Krishna's comments come against the backdrop of Pakistan's claims that its security forces had seized Indian-made arms and equipment from the Taliban stronghold of South Waziristan, where the Pakistan army has launched a major operation to flush out the militants.

Pakistan Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira and chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas on Monday said that troops had recovered "Indian arms, ammunition, literature and medical equipment" from Sherwangi, a key militant base that was captured a few days ago.

Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik had recently alleged that India was supplying arms to Taliban militants.
