ISLAMABAD - Foreign Office Spokesman Moazzam Ahmed Khan Thursday rejected the notion that the visit of the US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Marc Grossman, aimed at discussing the modalities related to a military operation in North Waziristan.“We are expecting Grossman’s visit to Pakistan. But I cannot tell you exactly when. The visit is part of the ongoing engagements between the two countries and when he comes, the two sides will discuss all issues of mutual interest as well as concerns”, Khan said giving weekly press briefing. Grossman will follow-up on the discussion between the Pakistani and US leadership on key bilateral issues discussed during several high-profile meetings in Washington and New York last month. A high-level Pak-US dialogue will commence next week, in Islamabad to cement bilateral relations in the various fields, he said. He added that the two sides would also discuss the situation in Afghanistan and regional security The spokesman, however, strongly rejected the notion that the attack on Malala Yousafzai had anything to do with a military operation in North Waziristan.“I think it will be very unfortunate if we think this way. I think we need to think about what happened and what happened was extremely condemnable, reprehensible and there was no justification whatsoever. People will keep coming up with all sorts of stories and conspiracy theories, but I think we only need to focus or be concerned about the fact that she was attacked and it was a reprehensible act,” he added. To another question, the spokesman said the Foreign Office had so far received no directives from the government regarding the letter to the Swiss authorities for opening graft cases against President Asif Ali Zardari. When his attention was drawn towards a meeting between President Asif Ali Zardari and his Afghan counterpart in Baku, the spokesman said there was no formal meeting between the two. However, the president did meet with the presidents of Iran and Azerbaijan and the prime minister of Turkey in Baku. On appointment of Pakistan’s new ambassador to China, Khan said, “Let me tell you that basically this is an administrative matter and there is a process involved for the selection of ambassadors.” He also refused to comment on the Bilawal-Hina scandal.
