Balochistan is Pakistan`s internal problem: India

Last Updated: Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 21:30

New Delhi: India on Saturday again rebutted Pakistan`s allegation that New Delhi was fomenting trouble in Balochistan, saying it was Islamabad`s internal problem.

"We have stated it earlier and I say it again that there is no shred of evidence (with Pakistan) of India`s hand in Balochistan," Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao told reporters here.

Rao was asked about Islamabad foreign office spokesperson Abdul Basit claiming that "India is involved in Balochistan and the proof will be disclosed when the time comes".

"Balochistan is an internal problem of Pakistan. It is not our habit to interfere in our neighbours` affairs, for that matter any neighbour. I hope Pakistan will also follow the same role," Rao said.

India has been strongly rejecting the "unfounded" accusation of fomenting insurgency in Balochistan.

Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna on Thursday told Parliament that Pakistan "is fabricating evidence" of India`s alleged role in Balochistan.
