Pakistan won’t be affected by internal politics of India: Fawad Chaudhry
ISLAMABAD: Declaring that the Kashmir issue is the biggest source of contention between India and Pakistan, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Monday said that Pakistan stills stands for peace and dialogue.
“Pakistan and India are both atomic powers. So one option is have war and then nothing will remain between the two countries,” he said while addressing a Senate session.
He said Pakistan invited India for peace and dialogue to put forward its stance, and it is the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan that issues are resolved between the two countries.
He said that nations do not develop solely on their own but rather regions prosper, and that the CPEC will bring an massive economic boom in Pakistan which will affect the whole region.
Regarding the recent statements of Indian army chief, the federal minister said Pakistan will not be affected by the internal politics of India and will not be threatened by anyone.
He said that statements and the aggressive stance of the Indian government was an attempt to divert from the Rafale jet scandal which has marred the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said that the India should look at its own backyard as the restive region of Kashmir was now out of the its hands. “Kashmir is out of the hands of India. Pakistan stands for peace,” he said.
Pakistan is fully capable of responding to any aggression but India should look at internal matters as it is facing political instability, he said.
It may be recalled that the information minister yesterday, in an telephonic interview to an Indian channel, termed Kashmir as the biggest issue of contention between the two countries.
