FO rejects speculations about presence of US military or airbase in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri rejected speculations about the presence of a US military or airbase inside Pakistan, saying such “baseless and irresponsible speculations” must be avoided.

While responding to media queries, the Spokesperson stated that there was no U.S. military or airbase in Pakistan; nor was any such proposal envisaged. Any speculation on this account was baseless and irresponsible and should be avoided.

The Spokesperson further added that Pakistan and the U.S. have a framework of cooperation in terms of Air Lines of Communication (ALOC) and Ground Lines of Communication (GLOC) in place since 2001. No new agreement has been made in this regard.

This comes as earlier it was reported that Pakistan would continue to provide air and ground access to the US military for its Afghan operations.
