Islamabad, Mar 11: Pakistan has expressed its concern over "news reports in the Indian media about planned terrorist attacks on Cricket World Cup venues in India launched from Pakistani soil".

Commenting on these Indian media reports, Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said: "Terrorism has no borders. It is a vicious phenomenon that all must collectively confront."

"Pakistan, itself a victim of terrorism, takes all such reports seriously," she said, adding: "We hope that India will make fool-proof arrangements for the security of Cricket World Cup."

In reference to Shiv Sena threats to the Pakistan team, Janjua said that Pakistan had already conveyed its concerns about "vituperative statements being made from within India about the participation of Pakistan's cricket team."

Pakistan looks forward to the forthcoming meeting of Interior and Home Secretaries to discuss, inter-alia, counter-terrorism, she added.

The statement came after the Indian Home Ministry sounded a nationwide alert in the wake of inputs that the terror groups Al-Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba are looking for opportunities to target the ongoing World Cup matches in India.
