Re­solv­ing 26/11 case in Pak in­ter­est: Im­ran

POS­I­TIVE TALK

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - NATION -

I have asked our gov­ern­ment to find out the sta­tus of the (Mumbai ter­ror at­tack) case. Re­solv­ing that case is in our in­ter­est be­cause it was an act of ter­ror­ism. IM­RAN KHAN, Pak­istani PM

he said. “I have opened a visa-free peace cor­ri­dor with In­dia called Kar­tarpur (so that In­dian Sikhs can visit a shrine in Pak­istan). Let’s hope that af­ter the elec­tion is over, we can again re­sume talks with In­dia,” he said, re­fer­ring to the re­cent launch of work on a cor­ri­dor that will link Dera Baba Nanak in In­dia to Kar­tarpur gur­d­wara in Pak­istan.

Khan also dis­missed the oft-re­peated con­tention of US of­fi­cials that the lead­er­ship of the Afghan Tal­iban is based in Pak­istan. “When I came into power, I got a com­plete briefing from the se­cu­rity forces.

They said that we have time and time again asked the Amer­i­cans, “Can you tell us where the sanc­tu­ar­ies are, and we will go af­ter them?” There are no sanc­tu­ar­ies in Pak­istan.

Re­fer­ring to camps for Afghan refugees, he added: “If there are a few hun­dred, maybe 2,000 to 3,000 Tal­iban who move into Pak­istan, they could eas­ily move into these Afghan refugee camps.”
