PENTAGON: ‘ REPORT ALLEGES ISLAMABAD SUPPORTS MILITANT PROXIES IN INDIA & AFGHANISTAN ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – November 06 – Pakistan summoned the US ambassador after a Pentagon report alleged that Islamabad supports militant proxies in neighbouring India and Afghanistan, AP reported.

The Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that Pakistani National Security and Foreign Affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz conveyed the complaint to US Ambassador Richard Olson.

The US Defence Department’s report, ‘Progress Towards Security and Stability in Afghanistan’, said militants continue to enjoy safe havens in Pakistan.

According to Pentagon, the fighters are used as a hedge against Islamabad’s loss of influence in Afghanistan and as a counterweight to India’s superior military.
