US envoy Munter denies ever meeting Hafiz Saeed
Islamabad: The US Embassy has categorically rejected an op-ed published in a Pakistan daily that claimed a meeting took place between US ambassador Cameron Munter and Jamaat ud Daawa chief Hafiz Saeed.
“Ambassador Munter has never met with Hafiz Saeed,” said an embassy statement, mentioning the op-ed titled ‘For how long?’ that appeared on May 9.
“No US official has made any promises to, or agreements with Hafiz Saeed,” the embassy said.
The statement said Hafiz Saeed is a wanted terrorist responsible for the Mumbai 2008 attack that killed 166, including six Americans, reports a newspaper.
“He is subject to UN Security Council Resolution 1267/1989 sanctions. There is an international responsibility to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice,” the statement said.
