"Whatever the US president said about instability in Pakistan and Afghanistan are his predictions and have nothing to do with ground realities," Sartaj Aziz, adviser to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on foreign affairs said.

Aziz made the comment at a breakfast meeting with Chinese scholars, diplomats and journalists here. In his last State of the Union address on Tuesday night, Obama said: "Instability will continue for decades in many parts of the world - in the Middle East, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in parts of central America, Africa and Asia."

Some of these places may become safe havens for new terrorist networks; others will fall victim to ethnic conflict, or famine, feeding the next wave of refugees," Obama added.

Disagreeing with the President, Aziz said: "Pakistan is taking decisive action against terrorism and militancy, and days to come will witness more stability here.
