India’s claim of victory at ICJ is misleading: FO
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakariya says India claim of victory in the ICJ is incorrect and misleading.
He said the international court has just stayed the execution and we are preparing for the next hearing of the case.
At his weekly news briefing in Islamabad today, Zakariya says India is heating up the situation on the LOC and heightening tension in order to divert attention from its perpetual atrocities in the occupied Kashmir.
He said the world community is mindful of the perils facing the region. It is vital that the UNSC resolutions on Kashmir dispute are implemented at the earliest. For this, the territory should be demilitarized so that the Kashmiri people could exercise their right to self determination through a UN plebiscite in an environment free of bloodshed.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakariya said the international community including the US and the United Nations has expressed their concerns on the LOC situation.
He said India needs to understand that it cannot wish away or suppress the Kashmir movement.
Responding to a question, the spokesperson said that instability in India is a reality. The gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir have also been condemned by the world. He said the present situation in India has also raised fears amongst the investors.
Zakariya said India is involved in perpetrating and financing terrorism inside Pakistan. He said the confessional statement of Kulbushan Jhadav confirms Indian involvement in espionage and subversive activities in Pakistan.
Responding to a question about the recently held Summit in Riyadh, the spokesperson said Pakistan remains committed to the unity of Islamic countries and will continue to make efforts in this regard.
About CPEC, Nafees Zakariya said it is an economic development project which entails benefits not only for Pakistan and China but the entire region. Many countries have expressed their interest to join the mega project.
