FO strongly rejects reports of medical treatment to Taliban in Pakistan


Islamabad, Aug. 18 (TNS): Foreign Office spokesman has strongly rejected reports alleging that some Taliban fighters involved in the Ghazni attack were offered medical treatment in Pakistani hospitals.

In a statement in Islamabad today, he said Afghanistan has not officially shared any information or evidence with Pakistan in this regard.

The spokesman said in the absence of official communications through regular channels established bilaterally, such reports cannot be given any credence.

He said these reports can only be viewed as malicious propaganda to vitiate the existing cooperation between the two countries.
