Haqqani denounces allegations about ISI's involvement in Indian embassy attack

      Pakistan's Ambassador to the US, Hussain Haqqani, has denounced his Afghan counterpart's allegations that the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) might have facilitated attackers who targeted the Indian embassy in Kabul earlier this week. "It is unfortunate that instead of working together with Pakistan to eliminate the common threat of terrorism, some of our neighbours choose to blame us," The Daily Times quoted Haqqani, as saying. Haqqani said Pakistan itself was a victim of militancy and said Islamabad's 'traditional enemies' could have planned Saturday's terror strike on the Army General Headquarters in Rawalpindi. "Attack on our military headquarters could raise doubts about the involvement of Pakistan's traditional enemies. The spiral of violence and allegations must now come to an end," he said. It may be noted that Afghan Ambassador Said Jawad, while speaking in a television programme, had pointed fingers at the ISI for Friday's Kabul attack, in which 17 people were killed over 60 injured.
