KARACHI: The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Wednesday denied claims that Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence Ahmed Shuja Pasha held meetings with leaders of certain Arab states, DawnNews reported.

A legal notice was also sent to British newspaper 'The Independent' for publishing a ‘baseless article’ against the ISI chief.

A spokesperson for the ISPR said that the DG ISI did not meet any Arab leaders from May 1 and May 9.

During his visits to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the ISI chief had only held meetings with his counterparts, the spokesperson said.

The visits focused on exchange of intelligence between the secret agencies of the stated countries.
