ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office has declared the recent American fantasy of media reports regarding Usama –Bin-Laden as absolute hearsay and nonsense.

During her weekly briefings to the media, spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said that the baseless and assumed reports were nothing more than thrash, as they lacked any credibly reliable sources.

In the similar vein she also rejected the spate of allegations by Afghan Elders’ Jirga; reminding that Pakistan was itself a victim of terrorism, having taken massive brunt of terrorism. “We hope that Pakistan’s sacrifices would be considered and respected “, she stressed.

It was also announced that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was likely to attend Nuclear Safety Summit beginning in The Hague from Monday next, while also stressing that Pakistan had a very effective and strong nuclear safety strategy, which has been globally acknowledged. She also pointed out that it had been agreed in the summit process that nuclear security was primarily a National responsibility.

Responding to another question, she said that Prime Minister’s visit to Iran was also very much on the cards but the exact date had not yet been worked out. “Pakistan has not changed its foreign policy vis-a-viz its neighbours and Muslim countries”, she declared.

The spokesperson categorically stated that no country had sought military intervention, help from Pakistan for its internal security, issues. She also cleared that no Pakistani manufactured weapons would be supplied to any country, while even if supplied would entail strict arms export policy.

To a question about giving more trade concessions to India, she said Pakistan had some concerns in this regard, while in order to make the process of trade expansion more durable and ensure our bilateral relations on sound footings, Pakistan and India equally need to y address all the issues particularly Jammu and Kashmir, Siachin, Sir Creek and rivers waters, comprehensively.

Tasneem also denied that Pakistan had any inklings about the missing and hapless Malaysian flight, and strongly rejected the idiotic notion and fantasy laden theory of such a massive jetliner like 777 being landed somewhere at the roughest mountainous terrain of the world. “Even Pakistan had incompatible airports to handle such a hunk of jetliner “she reasoned, while also praying for the safety of passengers of the ill-fated aircraft.}
