PM effectively highlighted Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir at UN: FO

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakria on Saturday said Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi effectively presented Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir issue in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi courageously and comprehensively highlighted all regional issues including Kashmir, Rohingyia and Afghanistan, he said while talking to PTV.

He lauded the Prime Minister’s address in UNGA and said it highlighted Indian atrocities and barbarism on innocent people of Occupied Kashmir.

Nafees Zakria said India was involved in state terrorism in the Occupied Kashmir and terrorism activities in Pakistan as was evident from capture of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhev.

He said it seemed that India was using Afghanistan’s soil for terrorists activities against Pakistan. India always tried to vandalize and sabotage relations of Pakistan with Afghanistan, he added.

The FO Spokesman said India was also committing violations on Line of Control (LoC).

He said Pakistan ties with Afghanistan were based on people-to-people contact. Afghanistan was suffering from a critical situation as terrorists organisations were getting strengthened there, he added.

He said terrorism was a global phenomena and Pakistan had rendered numerous sacrifices in war against terrorism.

To a query, he said Pakistan has strategic dialogue with United States (US).
