Threatening statements from India against Pakistan should be dismaying for int’l community: FO
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said the threatening statements emanating from the top Indian leadership against Pakistan should be a matter of concern for the international community.
“The international community should also take notice and get stopped the ongoing Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir,” he said while responding to the queries of media persons at his weekly news briefing about Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tirade against Pakistan in the United Kingdom.
He categorically dismissed Indian claims of surgical strikes terming them as farcical.
Rejecting Indian allegations of terrorism, the spokesperson reminded it was actually India which was perpetrating acts of terrorism.
He said Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav was a living proof of who exported terrorism. He said the Indian allegations were false gimmickry to divert world’s attention from its heinous crimes against humanity in occupied Kashmir.
Responding to another query, the FO spokesperson said Pakistan had received Indian rejoinder on Kulbhushan Yadav. He said Pakistan would examine it and then submit its reply.
Dr Muhammad Faisal said that Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif will pay a two day visit to Beijing starting on Monday to attend the meeting of Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
The meeting will discuss regional peace and stability besides ways and means to further promote cooperation at different levels.
When asked about recent incident of cross border firing on Pak-Afghan border, Dr Muhammad Faisal said both the sides were continuing negotiations to address their misunderstandings.
Responding to yet another question about the US decision to restrict movements of Pakistani diplomats, he said both the sides were engaged on it and hoped the matter would be resolved.
About the Syrian situation, the spokesperson said Pakistan condemned the use of chemical weapons no matter wherever they were used.
He said Pakistani urge all the warring sides to find a solution to the matter to end the sufferings of the Syrian people.
