Pakistan not against visit of NIA team: Sushma

India has claimed that Pakistan has "not refused" to allow a team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) to visit the country to pursue the probe into the Pathankot terror attack case.

 

"NIA ko unhone inkaar nahi kya (They did not decline visit of the NIA team)," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told a press conference in national capital.

 

She added that Islamabad has only sought "more time" to take a final decision on the issue.

 

A five-member team from Pakistan including an ISI officer had visited India in March to collect proof on the attack.

 

Pakistan has till now denied that team’s visit to New Delhi was on a reciprocal basis.

 

Sushma Swaraj said the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad had met Pakistani officials and "they said they are analysing (the evidence)".
