ISLAMABAD, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan on Tuesday dismissed as "baseless and unfounded" remarks by Indian Home Minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde, that Islamabad is "helping terrorists" to enter Indian territory, local media reported.

Mr. Shinde claimed on Monday that India has information that Pakistan is helping terrorists to enter India and that India is on alert, according to the report.

Pakistan angrily rejected the Indian claim and asked the Indian minister to share information with Pakistan.

"We totally reject these allegations and insinuations," the Pakistani Foreign Ministry said.

"They are totally baseless and unfounded. Such unsubstantiated statements are not very helpful in creating a conducive environment necessary for improving the relationship between our two countries," the statement said.

The Spokesman also said that if the Indian Home Minister has any information or evidence, he is most welcomed to share it with Pakistani authorities.

Pakistan and India, the traditional arch-rivals, routinely exchange charges against each other despite recent improvement in relationship, according to the report.

New Delhi accuses Pakistan of infiltration into its administered Kashmir while Islamabad blames India for unrest in its southwestern Balochistan province.

Both countries have fought three wars, two over Kashmir, since 1947.
