Islamabad, Jan 14(ANI): Pakistan has charged India with hesitating to share details of the 2007 Samjhauta Express terrorist attack probe with it.

“Now four years have passed, India should share it with Pakistan without further delay,” The Nation quoted Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit, as saying during his weekly press briefing.

The Samjhauta Express blast took place in 2007, in which dozens of Pakistani nationals were killed.

Similarly, Islamabad was still awaiting a response from New Delhi to its suggestion of sending a judicial commission to India as a legal requirement pertaining to the accused of the 2008 Mumbai attacks being tried in Pakistan, said Basit.

When his attention was drawn towards the concerns of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Affairs, over the Pakistan Government’s policy about the Kashmir issue, the FO spokesman said: “There is no laxity on Kashmir issue because it is one of the most important foreign policy issues for Pakistan.”

Pakistan had vigorously been pursuing the Kashmir issue at diplomatic and political fronts, Basit added. (ANI)
