[TamilNet, Thursday, 17 June 2004, 12:31 GMT]
Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has strongly dismissed "the allegations that Pakistan's High Commissioner - designate to Sri Lanka poses national security threat to India", said the High Commission of Pakistan in Colombo in a press statement issued on Thursday.

The statement alleged that the article was "a motivated piece designed to spread disinformation by an ex- RAW operator".

The fulltext of the press statement follows:

PAKISTAN DISMISSES INDIAN MAGAZINE‚S REPORT
Colombo, June 17,2004

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has strongly dismissed the allegations that Pakistan's High Commissioner- designate to Sri Lanka poses national security threat to India.

A senior Official of the Ministry while commenting on an article titled "Their man in Colombo" by B. Raman published in the Indian magazine Outlook India said that it was a motivated piece designed to spread disinformation by an ex- RAW operator.

The charges of ISI's involvement in every perceivable trouble in India have become a familiar refrain from quarters inimical to Pakistan and whose only agenda is to fuel anti-Pakistan sentiments.

The accusation that Pakistan's High Commissioner-designate to Colombo poses a national security threat to India is indeed preposterous and should be dismissed with the contempt that it deserves.
