Ready to open Kartarpur border with India despite tensions: Fawad

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said Pakistan is still willing to open Kartarpur border opening with India despite tensions straining ties between Islamabad and New Dehli.

In an interview to an Indian media outlet over telephone, the minister said: “War and animosity are not the solutions of any conflict.”

He reiterated the PTI government’s resolve to open Kartarpur border with India for Sikh pilgrims.

The Kashmir issue is the bone of contention between Pakistan and India, Fawad maintained and was of the view that there is a situation of political turmoil in the internal politics of India.

A day earlier, the federal minister had said Indian government was making statements against Pakistan to divert attention from a corruption scandal targeting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that Pakistan rejected war mongering by the ruling elite which was an attempt to bail out Modi from calls for resignation amid a mega corruption scandal and calls for his resignations.

“We reject war mongering by ruling elite of India everyone know Indian Govt strategy is to use hate mongering against Pak basically to bail Pm Modi from call for resignation post French jets Rafael deal and divert attention of Indian public from this mega corruption scandal,” said the minister.

Referring to India’s Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi’s recent statements, the information minister said that this explains the tirade by the BJP against Pakistan.
