PESHAWAR: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa has said that it is regrettable that Pakistan was blamed soon after Uri attack without any evidence having surfaced.

Addressing a news conference in Peshawar on Tuesday he said , Pakistan armed forces are fully ready to respond to any situation.

Bajwa said a special operational meeting was held soon after return of General Raheel from Germany.

He said the security forces unearthed and averted fourteen terrorist attacks in different parts of the country.  

Bajwa said one thousand four hundred and seventy combing operations have been conducted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA since 1st July this year to control the menace of terrorism.

He said seven facilitators of suicide attacks on Christian Colony Peshawar and District Courts Mardan have been arrested.

Asim Saleem Bajwa said both the terrorist attacks were planned in Afghanistan and the suicide bombers entered Pakistan from Afghan soil.

He said the information about terrorist attacks have been shared with the International Security Assistance Force, the Afghan government, army and intelligence.

The DG ISPR said security forces have established twenty check posts along the Pak- Afghan border to control cross border movement of terrorists.

To a question, he said the return of Temporarily Displaced Persons of FATA will be completed by November this year.
