Pakistan rejects allegation of providing funds to BNP
Responding to a question about news reports in some sections of the Bangladeshi press to the effect that a former Director General ISI had admitted that the ISI had financed the Bangladesh Nationalist Party during the general elections in Bangladesh in 1991, the Spokesman said that these news reports were not only totally baseless but also part of mischievous efforts to damage the brotherly and mutually beneficial Pakistan-Bangladesh relationship. He added that Pakistan strictly adhered to the principle of non-interference in internal affairs of other countries and that it would be ill-advised to give credence to such false, misleading, and self-serving stories.
