Lahore, Mar. 25 (ANI): UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband has said that Pakistans history has proven that maintaining links with terrorists in the hope that they could be used as an instrument was a total failure. In an interview with a British TV station, Miliband urged Pakistani leaders to unite against the common enemy of terrorism. He also said that Pakistan must direct its attention to the threat posed by domestic terrorism, the Daily Times reports. Miliband said Britain was also working with the Pakistani authorities on the twenty Britain citizens of Pakistani origin who had reportedly been trained by militants in Pakistan and were now in the UK. In the wake of terror attack on the Lankan cricket team in Lahore, Miliband had said that Pakistan was facing a mortal threat from its internal enemies. Pakistan is facing a mortal threat from its internal enemies. This is a very grave situation and it is intimately linked to the situation in Afghanistan. Its getting worse in a number of respects. The tempo of terrorist attacks has risen and the combination of political uncertainty, economic decline and the security side mean that this is a particularly challenging time for Pak government, he had said.
