Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Islamabad has taken up the issue of India’s ‘intrusion’ in Afghanistan with both New Delhi and the United States.

Addressing the Senate, Gilani said he had a detailed meeting with US National Security Adviser General James Jones over India’s expanding presence in Afghanistan.

Pakistan has been blaming India for using Afghan territory to launch terror activities in Pakistan, especially in Balochistan.

Pakistani agencies have also been accusing India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of plotting terror attacks across the country using Indian consulates in Afghanistan.

Recently, Pakistani intelligence officials claimed that they had nabbed the mastermind of the Lahore serial blasts, in which over 50 persons were killed earlier this month, who revealed that the attacks were planned two months ago in an Indian consulate in Afghanistan.

Pakistani agencies also claimed that a top Indian official had visited Kabul in December and met Muzammal, who had fled to Afghanistan via Balochistan after the attack on the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi in 2009.
