Islamabad: Pakistan on Wednesday described as
"baseless" the Indian Army chief`s assertion that over 40
terrorist camps were operational in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir
and said both countries need to address terrorism in a
cooperative and pragmatic manner.
Reacting to Gen V K Singh`s assertion that "active"
and "holding" terror training camp are operational in PoK,
Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit described his comments as
"baseless and self-serving."

Basit said terrorism was a "global and regional issue"
and that "Pakistan`s own concerns vis-a-vis India in this
regard had been amply conveyed".

"Both sides had agreed to discuss the issue of
terrorism and to address this matter in a cooperative and
pragmatic manner.
Recently, the SAARC Interior Ministers conference in
Islamabad adopted an important statement on the fight against
terrorism," he said.

During a media interview, Gen Singh also said the
Pakistan Army remained steadfast about its "Kashmir agenda"
and was resorting to giving "covering or distracting fire" to
help militants sneak into India across the Line of Control.
