Islamabad, Oct. 19 (ANI): Pakistan has denied Iranian claims that the government is aware of the Jundallah chief's presence in Balochistan.

The Daily Times quoted foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit, as saying that the Iranian ambassador's claim that the Jundullah chief is hiding in Pakistan could harm relations between both countries.

Pakistan and Iran were cooperating in the war on terror, and both countries enjoyed "friendly relations".

Basit said that the war on terror in South Waziristan reflected Pakistan's commitment not to allow its territory to be used for activities against any other country.

"Pakistan is not involved in terrorist activities ... we are striving hard to eradicate the menace," he said. (ANI)
