Isaf has always adequately responded to Pakistani military’s requests for assistance, says statement.

Web Desk July 29, 2012

The Pakistani claim that its military has notified the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) 52 times that militants were crossing the Pakistan-Afghanistan border is incorrect, said Nato on Sunday in a press release.

The statement said that Isaf has always adequately responded to Pakistani military’s requests for assistance.

“Isaf will continue to take every Pakistani military report of cross-border movement very seriously and will assist whenever and wherever possible,” the press release stated.

Highlighting the shared interests of Pakistan and Nato, the statement stressed the need for working together to control the cross-border attacks by the Haqqani network from North Waziristan.

Nato, in the press release, stated that the US-led international forces fighting in Afghanistan are committed to working together with Pakistan on the basis of mutual interest and respect.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated "it's military" instead of "its military". A correction has been made.

ET: Please correct the grammar " "The Pakistani claim that it’s military". You should use 'its' without the apostrophy. It's is a short form for It is.
