'India not involved in Baloch'

The minister told the Rajya Sabha that India’s position on Balochistan was an “open book”, and that New Delhi had already conveyed the matter to Islamabad at the highest level.
“Delhi has nothing to hide, and we have never interfered in Balochistan.”

“Pakistan is striving hard to fabricate evidence to show that India is fomenting trouble in that area,” Krishna said during question hour.

On Pakistani leaders’ allegation that India was interfering in Balochistan, he said: “The government has firmly rejected such unfounded allegations.”

He added: “Pakistan has not been able to marshal any evidence on India’s involvement in the problems in Balochistan.”

Statements by Pakistan’s foreign minister that Islamabad is compiling hard evidence against India, and that it will disclose New Delhi’s involvement at the right time, when read together, indicate that “Pakistan is striving hard to fabricate evidence of India’s involvement in Balochistan”, he said.

“The government has firmly rejected, including at the highest level, such unfounded allegations of India’s involvement in Balochistan.”
