US rejects Hafiz Saeed's remarks charging India, America against CPEC

".I would dismiss it (Saeed's comments) outright", Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said in his daily press briefing.

The US earlier said it is in constant "conversation" with the Pakistani leadership on the threats posed by terror organisations like the Haqqani network and LeT operating in the region.

Stating that most countries in the South Asian region were pursuing a peaceful path to economic prosperity, he said: "But, there is one country in India's neighbourhood whose competitive advantage rests exclusively in producing and exporting terrorism".

Speaking to media, Toner rejected Saeed's claims that pact between the two countries was "against the Muslim World and bulwark Pakistan".

The US State Department has warned Pakistan that it can not "pick and choose" the terrorist groups it goes after.

The Jamaat-Ud-Dawa (JuD) chief asserted, "The new pact between India and United States is against Pakistan, against China-Pak Eco Corridor and in fact it is against the Muslim world". "This is the preparation of a terrifying war".


This is a very frightening pact.

Addressing a seminar on the 51st Defence Day of Pakistan, Saeed said, "India and America are anxious that if the CPEC project succeeded, the entire Muslim world would stand beside Pakistan". The interest of both has become one, because of CPEC. And, the (resultant) new defence and economic pacts that will take place will oust America not only from this region and the Middle East, but from all important places and waters of the world.

Meanwhile, stepping up his attack on Pakistan, PM Modi today said there is "one country in our neighbourhood" which "produces and exports" terror as he pressed the worldwide community to isolate and sanction "this" instigator.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to make efforts to put India-China ties in the “right direction” and to “respect and accommodate” each others concerns to avoid “impedance” relations, a top Chinese diplomat said today.

Though the United Nations has declared JuD a terror organisation and individually designated Saeed as a terrorist in December 2008, he continues to live freely in Pakistan.
