Islamabad, May 09, 2012 (PPI-OT): The U.S. Embassy categorically rejects Jang’s op-ed “For How Long?” that appeared on May 9. Ambassador Munter has never met with Hafiz Saeed. No U.S. official has made any promises to, or agreements with, Hafiz Saeed.
Hafiz Saeed is a wanted terrorist responsible for the deadly attack on Mumbai in November 2008 that killed 166, including six Americans. He is subject to UN Security Council Resolution 1267/1989 sanctions. There is an international responsibility to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice.
