ISLAMABAD: Pakistan strongly rejected Indian allegations of being involved in the beheading of two Indian soldiers in Srinagar on Wednesday.  

"Pakistan rejects the statement made by Defence Minister A K Antony in the Rajya Sabha accusing the Special Services Group of Pakistan Army of beheading two Indian soldiers on January 8, 2013," said a statement issued by the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Two suspected militants disguised as cricketers opened fire with automatic rifles on a paramilitary camp in Srinagar on Wednesday, killing five Indian personnel and wounding five, police said.

The foreign ministry also strongly rejected remarks made by Indian Home Secretary R K Singh that evidence suggests that the militants who attacked the members of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were from probably from Pakistan.

"We feel that this trend of making irresponsible statements and knee-jerk reactions by senior Indian Government functionaries have the potential of undermining the efforts made by both sides to normalise relations between the two countries,"  the statement cautioned.

The ministry reiterated that Pakistan remains committed to resolving tensions with India through meaningful dialogue.

What is pakistan going to give India that will help India ? Pakistan is a global headache and thats a fact unfortunately. Im in no way supporting India's complaints but get real. Pakistan is not the party thats holding all the cards when it comes to Kashmir. Its India and India can do what it wants. Pakistan needs to ignore these politcal comments and get on with it and make sure Pakistan still exists 10 years from now and dont end up losing another part of the country like Bangladesh.

Pakistans only method of negotiation with almost all parties is help us otherwise we will send some nutjobs to cause violence in your country. Super offer isnt it.
