“People of Pakistan have been victim of Indian spy agency’s sabotaging activities. RAW’s network under Yadav was busy in terrorist and sabotaging activities in Balochistan and Karachi,” he said during his weekly news briefing in Islamabad.
To a query regarding Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intrusive remarks on Balochistan, the foreign office spokesperson said those were violations of the UN Charter. He referred to the statements of advisor on foreign affairs and the special assistant foreign affairs who pointed out that this is reflective of Indian state involvement in sponsoring and financing terrorism in Balochistan and his remarks amount to crossing the red-lines.
He said by mentioning Balochistan, the Indian Prime Minister has tried to ward off attention from what is happening in occupied Kashmir.
Nafees Zakaria said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would lead Pakistan’s delegation to the UN General Assembly next month and highlight Kashmir issue.
He said Nawaz Sharif strongly pleaded the cause of Kashmir during General Assembly session last year and he would raise the issue again.
He said the UN Secretary General and most of the UN members have already been informed about the precarious situation in occupied Kashmir.
The spokesman said it is time India is reminded by UN and international community to ensure realization of the right of self-determination of people of Jammu and Kashmir as per Security Council resolutions. He said the issue is outstanding on the Security Council agenda for six decades.
He expressed concern that for 40 consecutive days blatant violations of human rights are being committed by Indian occupation forces in Occupied Kashmir. Over 80 Kashmiris have been martyred, over 100 have lost their eye-sights due to pellet guns fire and thousands others injured by Indian forces.
He said the international community and human rights organizations should call upon India to stop use of brute force in Occupied Kashmir.
To a question he said Pakistan has invited India for dialogue on Kashmir in view of grave situation in occupied Kashmir and for the sake of regional peace.
To another question about India’s attaching conditions for dialogue, the spokesman said Pakistan wants to focus on Kashmir.
To another question, he said Pakistan has invited all SAARC member countries for the forthcoming SAARC Finance Ministers’ conference in Islamabad. He said confirmation from India is awaited.
Nafees Zakaria said Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry is in Germany for regular bilateral political consultations.
About Syrian conflict, he said Pakistan’s position is based on neutrality, impartiality and respect for Syrian independence, unity, solidarity and territorial integrity.
