Rejecting Pakistani envoy’s comment on NIA visit to that country, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju today said such statements will not help in improving relations between the two countries.

“We reject the statement given by the Pakistan High Commissioner. What he has said is wrong. It will not help in improving relations between the two countries,” the Minister of State for Home told reporters.

Rijiju’s statement came a day after Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit indicated that Indian investigators may not be allowed to visit Pakistan to pursue the probe in connection with the Pathankot terror attack.

However, India countered it by saying that before the visit of the Pakistani Joint Investigation Team here, both sides had agreed that it would be on the basis of reciprocity.

South Korea's foreign reserves jumped to a record high in July, the central bank said on August 5, 2013, appearing to support traders' suspicions of dollar-buying intervention by currency authorities last month. The reserves stood at $329.71 billion at the end of July, up $3.27 billion from June, the Bank of Korea said in a statement, attributing the rise to management gains and the appreciation of the euro in July, which the Bank of Korea said was up 1.8 percent against the dollar last month.
