ISPR denies Daily Telegraph's allegation against ISI
RAWALPINDI, Sept 29 (APP): A spokesman of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Saturday denied the allegation of British newspaper Daily Telegraph which alleges Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for running a defamation campaign through a Bangladeshi tabloid "Blitz weekly" against Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
He said these allegations are absurd and baseless."The ISI has nothing to do with this defamation campaign and neither any problem exists between the foreign minister and the Agency", he said in a press release issued here.
He said it is handiwork of those who want to weaken the state by creating misunderstanding between various institutions.
"It is not something new because such people have been fabricating misleading and impish stories in the past as well. The Newspaper needs to behave more responsibly and confirm veracity of information from respective entities before printing such malicious stories", he added.
The spokesman termed the effort involving the agencies as rubbish and part of a propaganda campaign, and said that we reserve the rights to take legal action on such anonymous reports without quoting any names and sources.
