Press Release on Pakistan's support of cross border terrorism

New Delhi
November 10, 1999

Our strong concerns at the anti-India tirade witnessed during the annual congregation of the terrorist organisation, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, held at Muridke from November 3-5, 1999, were conveyed to the Deputy High Commissioner of Pakistan, who was summoned to the Ministry of External Affairs today.

He was told that it was particularly reprehensible that open threats against India were made during the congregation by the terrorists and that the Pakistani authorities had taken no action against those who had made these threats and had used provocative language. This was yet another manifestation of Pakistan's support to international terrorism. The Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner was also told that the Government of India once again called upon the Pakistani authorities to abandon their irresponsible support of cross-border terrorism.
