ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday reiterated its condemnation of the attack on Kabul luxury hotel last Thursday, and expressed concern over attempts to implicate it over the incident.

In a statement released by the foreign office on Monday, it said that one Pakistani national had sustained serious injuries in the attack and remains under treatment.

“It is highly disturbing that attempts are being made to somehow implicate Pakistan in this terrorist incident. We reject the insinuation. The tendency to immediately blame Pakistan is unhelpful and should be discarded,” the statement read.

The statement further added, “We are also surprised to see the Afghan Interior Ministry expressing concern over the recently-initiated dialogue process with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), even though the Afghan leadership, at the highest level, has been expressing its support for this initiative."

On the Afghan elections, the statement said Pakistan has repeatedly underlined its support for efforts to ensure a free and fair electoral process.

"Pakistan remains committed to building a positive and mutually beneficial relationship with Afghanistan. This, however, requires a conducive environment for constructive engagement."

Iran accuses Pakistan.

India accuses Pakistan.

Afghan accuses Pakistan.

Even, China accuses Pakistan.

Yet, Pakistan rejects all accusations and claims there are no Terrorists on its soil.

But, the world knows the truth. No International Tourist will visit Pakistan, for everyone knows the truth. Only Pakistan is thinking it can fool everyone all the time.
