Amid Pakistan's charge that India was fomenting trouble in Balochistan, the US has said it does not have any evidence in this regard.

"Well, first of all, we have no evidence of that. I mean, we just have no evidence of that," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. 

Clinton, who just concluded a three-day visit to Pakistan, had made the remarks in Lahore during an interaction with Pakistani editors who told her that many Pakistanis believed India was fomenting trouble in Balochistan.

Describing Balochistan as "a very volatile region," she said she had not seen any evidence from Pakistan about India's involvement in Balochistan.

"Not that I've seen.... I have not seen it. I have not seen anything like that. So I can't agree with you because I personally don't have any information," she said, according to a transcript made available by the State Department in Washington.

Her comments assume significance in the wake of Pakistan alleging that India was fomenting trouble in Balochistan and that it had "evidence" to prove its claim. PTI
