Explain your role in terror activities, Pak tells India

November 06, 2009 11:46 IST

Pakistan has once again accused India of being involved in terror activities inside its territory, saying New Delhi must explain its role in promoting terrorism in the country, The Daily Times has reported.

Responding to Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao's remarks, the Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson said, "India must explain its own conduct in sponsoring and abetting terrorism and militancy in our region."

Earlier, Rao had urged the international community to pressurise Islamabad to 'implement its commitment to deal with terror groups.'

Rao had also expressed concerns over the safety of Pakistan's nuclear establishments.

Referring to the suicide bomb attack near the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in Kamra, which reportedly houses some of the country's nuclear assets, Rao said New Delhi hopes that the authorities in Islamabad would ensure the safeguarding of its nuke assets to prevent any untoward incident in the future.

"What I want to say on the issue is that we hope that the Pakistan government will continue to take steps to effectively secure their nuclear assets," Rao had said.
