No proof of Indian role in Pak terror: Holbrooke

Islamabad: Pakistan should focus on militancy within its borders instead of worrying about India's presence in Afghanistan as there is no evidence to suggest that New Delhi is backing the extremists, US Special Envoy Richard Holbrooke has said.
"Pakistan does not have to worry about India in Afghanistan. They need to worry about the miscreants in western Pakistan," Holbrooke said in an interview with Geo News channel at the US State Department in Washington.
"Now if the Indians were supporting those miscreants, that would be extraordinarily bad (and) really dangerous. But they're not. There is no evidence at all that the Indians are supporting the miscreants in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas or North West Frontier Province or Waziristan. None," he said.
Holbrooke was responding to a question on Pakistan's concerns about India's presence in Afghanistan. He noted that India has been playing a key role in the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country.
"India has given Afghanistan about $1 billion in assistance. They're rebuilding the parliament building, they've built a very useful road in the southwestern part of the country leading down towards Iran. They're training agricultural experts, they're giving scholarships. The Indians have published a pamphlet on what they're doing. I don't think that should be cause of concern for Pakistan."
