ISPR rubbishes UK media allegations against ISI
30 September, 2012
RAWALPINDI: Inter Service Press Relation (ISPR) has denied British Newspaper allegations of ISI running a defamation campaign against Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and termed these allegations as baseless.
A British paper The Telegraph had quoted senior unnamed PPP officials as having blamed Pakistan's powerful spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for running a defamation campaign against Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
A spokesman of ISPR denying the allegations said, "The ISI has nothing to do with this defamation campaign and neither any problem exists between the foreign minister and the Agency". It is handiwork of those who want to weaken the state by creating misunderstanding between various institutions.
It is not something new because such people have been fabricating misleading and impish stories in the past as well. The Newspaper needs to behave more responsibly and confirm veracity of information from respective entities before printing such malicious stories.
Spokesman termed the effort involving the agencies as rubbish and part of a propaganda campaign, and said that we reserve the rights to take legal action on such anonymous reports without quoting any names and sources.
