Islamabad: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today said Pakistan will produce evidence of India's alleged involvement in fomenting unrest in the tribal areas and Balochistan when there is a need to do so.

"We are not silent on the issue. When we talk about such evidence, the timing and forum to make them public have to be determined.

When there is a need, we will produce the evidence at that time," Gilani told a news conference at his official residence.

He was responding to a question on when Pakistan would make public the evidence it has of India’s alleged interference in Balochistan and the tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.

Gilani did not give details of the evidence that Pakistan has purportedly gathered. Over the past few weeks, Pakistani civil and military officials have claimed that evidence of India’s alleged role in fomenting unrest has been found by security forces and intelligence agencies.

Indian leaders, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, have dismissed the charges and said Pakistan has nothing to fear from India.

In response to another question, Gilani said he had taken up the issue of an alleged Indian role in Balochistan during his meeting with Singh in Egypt in July.
