No evidence of ISIS militants presence in Pakistan: FO

The booklet calls upon people to support the ISIS which has occupied large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.

Islamabad — The government on Thursday said that they were not aware of Pakistani nationals working in association with the Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi-led militant movement in Iraq.

“Reports about ISIS in Pakistan’s tribal areas are not correct and Pakistani forces are fighting terrorists and this fight is in the middle of its success,” Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Tasneem Aslam told her weekly media briefing. Tasneem, however, acknowledged that a small group of activists belonging to the ISIS, which is led by an Afghan national, has distributed a booklet in parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal areas, particularly in Afghan refugee camps.

The booklet calls upon people to support the ISIS which has occupied large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.

It says the caliphate declared in parts of Iraq and Syria will expand to Khurasan, comprising Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries.
