ISLAMABAD:Pakistan has "emphatically"rejected Indian accusations that "Pakistani official Agencies"backed the Mumbai attacks,saying such remarks would only serve to raise tension in the region.

The Government emphatically rejects the unfortunate allegations levelled against Pakistan by Indian Premier in New Delhi,"the spokesman said.
