No slanging match with Pakistan, says KrishnaJune 28th, 2012 - 1:42 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) India does not get into “any kind of slanging match” with Pakistani dignitaries, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said Thursday, refusing to enter into a debate with Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik over 26/11 suspect Abu Jindal Hamza.
“We do not get into any kind of a slanging match with any distinguished persons from Pakistan,” Krishna told reporters here on the sidelines of an event to attract investments into Afghanistan.
He was asked for his reaction to Malik’s rejection of Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram’s assertion of “state support” to terrorists involved in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, as revealed by Hamza’s confessions to Indian police during interrogation.
Malik had Wednesday claimed that Chidambaram’s remarks were a “propaganda campaign” against Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence.
Hamza, an Indian national, was arrested June 21 on landing at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. He had been living in Saudi Arabia on a Pakistani passport and was deported earlier this month.
