Pakistani intelligence agent cancels UK visit

LONDON – A diplomatic spat with implications for international counter-terrorism escalated Saturday, when Pakistan's spy chief canceled a visit to London after the British prime minister suggested that Pakistan exports terrorism.
A senior Pakistani intelligence official confirmed that Lt.-Gen. Ahmed Shujaa Pasha had called off a trip to Britain planned for next week, when he had been due to discuss security cooperation with British intelligence bosses. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with his agency's policy.
British Prime Minister David Cameron outraged officials in Islamabad when he said during a visit to India that Pakistan must not be allowed to "promote the export of terror whether to India, whether to Afghanistan or to anywhere else in the world."
