KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon on Saturday rejected reports alleging that Talibaninfo-icon militants involved in the Ghazni attack were offered medical treatment in Pakistani hospitals.

“Kabul hasn’t officially shared any information or evidence with us so far,” Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said during his weekly briefing in Islamabad on Saturday.

 “In the absence of official communications through regular channels established bilaterally, such reports cannot be given any credence, and can only be viewed as malicious propaganda to vitiate the existing cooperation between the two countries,” he was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the FO.

The statement comes in the wake of Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa reiterating on Thursday that there is no support for any terrorist activity inside Afghanistaninfo-icon from Pakistan and the Afghan government needs to look inwards as the problem lies within the war-torn country.

A week ago, hundreds of Taliban fighters stormed the historic Ghazni City and retreated five days later. Defence Minister Tariq Shah Bahrami and other officials had claimed externalinfo-icon elements including Pakistanis aided the Taliban in Ghazni.
