ISLAMABAD, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan on Friday
rejected the allegation of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that Mumbai
train bombers were supported by Pakistani elements.
"This is baseless, and we reject it," the website of
the local newspaper Dawn quoted Pakistani Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim
Aslam as saying.
"In the past two days, India has not given us
anything in writing or talked of any evidence," she said.
"Pakistan does not tolerate terrorism and is in the
forefront of international efforts to fight this menace," said Aslam.
Responding to the Indian prime minister's warning
that the peace process would not move forward unless Pakistan fulfilled promises
to stop the support of anti-Indian terrorism from its soil, Aslam said that the
accusations against Pakistan were "unsubstantiated."
"The peace process between Pakistan and India is a
separate matter," Aslam said.
"It is in the interest of both Pakistan and India as
well as the region. That is why we believe that the peace process must be
continued and carried forward," she added.
Indian Prime Minister Singh said Friday that the
Mumbai train bombers were "supported by elements across the border," and he said
Pakistan must rein in terrorists before a peace process can move ahead.
Seven blasts along the suburban commuter train
network of India's business capital Mumbai Tuesday evening has left at least 200
people dead and about 740 injured. Enditem
