NEW YORK: Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz says India is involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan.
Addressing a news conference in New York, he rejected Indian allegation of supporting terrorists and said Pakistan is engaged in a massive military operation against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
Sartaj Aziz said Pakistan has suffered the most in the fight against terrorism, and our sacrifices for the sake of global peace have also been acknowledged by the entire world.
He said Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi has handed over the dossier containing proofs of Indian involvement specially in FATA, Balochistan and Karachi to UN Secretary General. Pakistan has also apprised foreign ministers of 15 countries of Indian aggression on the Line of Control and Working Boundary.
The Adviser said Pakistan has always desired to resolve all disputes with India through peace talks, while India is stressing only on terrorism. He said certain elements are trying to use the global war on terror as a pretext to crush oppressed people’s struggle for self-determination.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has said that India’s attempts to deny its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir are a travesty of history.
Exercising Right of Reply during the General Debate of 70th session of UN General Assembly in New York, Counselor Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations, Bilal Ahmad pointed out that India has deployed over seven hundred thousand security forces in Occupied Kashmir to perpetuate its occupation.
He said only the occupier would oppose the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions that promised self-determination to the people of the disputed State of Jammu and Kashmir.
Highlighting the Indian state terrorism in occupied territory, Counselor Bilal said if India had respect for international law and moral courage, it would end its reign of terror, withdraw its troops and let the Kashmiris freely decide their future in the UN mandated plebiscite.
