ISLAMABAD: Pakistan once again strongly rejected assertions made in a BBC documentary claiming that Pakistani security services are supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan, Express 24/7 reported on Sunday.
The Foreign Ministry ruled out all the claims, saying that the series ‘Secret Pakistan’ has made baseless and fabricated allegations about Pakistan.
The statement termed the series as fiction which cannot belittle Pakistan’s sacrifices and contribution in countering terrorism.
On the other hand, the Pakistani army also strongly denied claims made in the BBC documentary.
The army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas described the allegations made by the US and Afghan officials as baseless and malicious.
The BBC series program accused Pakistan of playing a double game.
The series lay blame on Pakistan of acting as America’s ally in public while secretly training and arming its enemy in Afghanistan.
