London, May 6 (ANI): Admitting that Faisal Shahzad's statement that he received bomb-making training in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal region of Wazirstan would a bring a bad name to the country, Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said he is worried about he repercussions of the failed New York bombing plot.

Describing the incident as 'unfortunate', Malik said the terror plot was part of a campaign being run against Pakistan by the extremists.

"This unfortunate incident, having been done under the name (of Pakistan) or by a Pakistani will definitely bring a bad name to Pakistan, for which we are worried," BBC quoted Malik, as saying.

Malik, however, said that since Shahzad was a naturalised US citizen, it was the responsibility of America to investigate the case.

Earlier, Malik had said that Islamabad is yet to receive any formal request from Washington to probe the case.

He termed the bombing plot as a 'conspiracy against Pakistan', but added that the government would take stern action against all those involved in the terror plot.

"Pakistan would extend its full support to the US authorities in probing the matter. No one would be allowed to use Pakistan's territory for any act of terrorism," he added. (ANI)
