ISAF not conducting operations inside Pakistan

KABUL, Afghanistan – Contrary to recent press reports, the NATO International Secuirty Assistance Force has not and is not involved in the conduct of any operations inside of Pakistan.

"These reports are simply false," said Col Tom Collins, ISAF spokesman.

ISAF, which is here in support of the Government of Afghanistan, enjoys a good relationship with the Government of Pakistan and its military. This is most evident in the institution of the Tripartite Commission in which ISAF, Pakistani and Afghan representatives meet to discuss issues and operations affecting areas of mutual interest, Collins said.
