ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Thursday said decision of the US State Department to include four Lashker-e-Taiba linked organizations and two individuals in the list of the specially designated global terrorist entities has no bearing or obligation on it.
"An action by any state individually does not have any bearing or obligation on Pakistan", Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasnim Aslam told weekly press briefing.
However, she said that taking actions against any individual or entity becomes obligatory on Pakistan if United Nations lists them and puts them on the list of designated entities.
To another question whether any foreign country has offered assistance for the internally displaced families of North Waziristan, the spokesperson said Pakistan has not asked for any foreign assistance.
The United Arab Emirates, however, has offered some assistance for the IDPS, she added. The spokesperson said, "The people of North Waziristan are our brothers and sisters and as a nation it is our responsibility to come out and extend all out support for the IDPs who have to leave their homes for the peace and security of the entire country."
