Islamabad, Jul 27: Pakistan had rejected all the blames imposed on them by US over the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Taliban link-ups issue.

Abdul Basir, Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman, said on Monday, Jul 26 that the allegations were "far-fetched and skewed" and discrepant with ground realities.

"Constructive and positive role of Pakistan in Afghanistan" cannot be affected by such "baseless and self-serving reports," claimed Basir.

The whistleblowers' website Wikileaks on Sunday, Jul 25 had made public 92,000 classified reports and cables from the US military, intelligence and civilian administration in Afghanistan.

Dating from 2004 to 2009, the documents contain allegations that the ISI was linked to a plot to assassinate Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the 2008 bombing of the Indian embassy in Kabul.

One report said the ISI had allegedly offered USD 15,000 to USD 30,000 for the killing of Indian construction workers in Afghanistan.
