He said that Indian intelligence agencies have remained involved in subversive activities in Pakistan especially Balochistan and Karachi.
This was evident by the confessional statement of serving Indian naval officer Kulbashan Yadav, and several high-ranking officials of foreign countries had also claimed that our neighbour was financing instability in Pakistan.
Expressing concerns over continuous human rights violations in Indian-held Kashmir, the spokesperson urged the international community to raise its voice against blatant human rights violations which are carried out with impunity in the restive valley.
He said Pakistan has condemned Indian atrocities at the highest level and also asked the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHCR) to send a fact finding mission to the occupied Kashmir. He noted that several countries including United States, China and Turkey as well as rights bodies and NGOs have expressed serious concerns over the situation.
Zakaria also said that Pakistan was highly concerned over the huge presence of Indian forces in occupied Kashmir and vehemently rejected Indian allegations of infiltration across the Line of Control (LoC).
“We have a firm position on it and we will not allow our land to be used against any other country.” He said Pakistan is a victim of terrorism and committed to eradicating the menace and neither does it discriminate among terrorists groups.
When asked about the hostile statements of the Afghan president against Pakistan, Zakaria termed it as unfortunate saying these are not helpful.
He said we have tried and will continue to have the best relations with the neighbouring countries especially Afghanistan, and that Pakistan supports the peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan as it is also in the interest of Pakistan.
