Terror bigger threat: Qureshi echoes ISI

Shah Mahmood Qureshi
Islamabad, Aug 19: After Pakistan's main spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), now its Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also gave the same opinion that terrorism is greater threat to them than India.

Qureshi stated that extremism is a greater threat to Pakistan than neighboring India.

He also stated, "As far as India is concerned, yes, we have outstanding issues with India, and both sides have agreed that we can settle them through peaceful negotiations."

In a new threat assessment, ISI determined that Islamist militants, and not India pose the main threat to Pakistan.

According to sources, the assessment, WSJ said, a regular review of national security allocated a two-thirds likelihood of a major threat to Pakistan coming from militants rather from India or elsewhere.

However, questions were raised over the assessment of the ISI as whether it's fully endorsed by Pakistan's military and civilian government.
