Gen Kayani terms Mullen’s statements very unfortunate

Taking note of the recent statements made by Admiral Mullen, Chairman Joint Chief of Staff of the United States, Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on Friday termed these as very unfortunate and not based on facts.

This is especially disturbing in view of a rather constructive meeting with Admiral Mullen in Spain, he added.

On the specific question of contacts with Haqqanis, the Army Chief said that Admiral Mullen knows fully well which all countries are in contact with the Haqqanis. Singling out Pakistan is neither fair nor productive.

Categorically denying the accusations of proxy war and ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) support to Haqqanis, the Gen Kayani wished that the blame game in public statements should give way to a constructive and meaningful engagement for a stable and peaceful Afghanistan, an objective to which Pakistan is fully committed.
