Pak army denies report of Kayani's talk with Indian PM

A spokesperson of the Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) denied the news item which appeared in 'The Times' of London on April 23 and called it "unfounded and totally baseless".

The paper had reported that Singh had appointed an "unofficial envoy" to make contact with Kayani, "who exercises de facto control over Pakistan's foreign policy".

The talks, through a back channel, have encouraged the UK and US believe that the countries' competition for influence in Afghanistan could be better managed during efforts to start a peace process, the media report had said.

The Prime Minister's Office in New Delhi had yesterday termed as 'false' the report that Singh had contacted Kayani before the Mohali meeting between Prime Ministers of the two countries.
