Holbrooke Says Pak Has No Proof of India’s Baloch Link
Richard Holbrooke, US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, has said that Pakistani leadership raised the issue of India’s alleged involvement in Balochistan, but did not provide any credible proofs to back their charge.
Replying to State Department Press Corps when asked to comment on his meeting with Pakistani leaders during his last week’s visit to Pakistan, he said: “I would be misleading, if I said it didn’t come up.”
When asked whether Islamabad provided him with any “credible evidence of India’s involvement in Balochistan”, he said: “The narrow answer to your question is no.”
However, he did not explain anything any further. Besides, he reaffirmed that Kashmir is outside his ability to discuss.
Holbrooke said that there is no difference with India on the issue of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
“You know, India was the first country in the world I was ever aware of. I have a very special feeling for it. And if there’s a rift, you have to ask the Indians. I didn’t see any rift,” the US envoy said.
