Aziz urges international community to take notice of Pak-India tensions


ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz urged the international community on Monday to take notice of a dangerous rise in tensions between Pakistan and India.


“Even if we are not friends, Pakistan does not want tense relations with India. We want dialogue over all contentious issues including water and Kashmir,” said Aziz, speaking at an event organized by the Higher Education Commission in the federal capital.

Speaking about recent controversial comments by the Indian leadership, he said that such anti-Pakistan statements help vote banks of political parties in India.

“This is why the India-Pakistan situation keeps changing. Therefore, we will not negotiate on India’s terms,” he said.

He said that foreign ministers of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) member countries will meet tomorrow in Jeddah where they will discuss the situation in Yemen and the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

He said that Islamic countries have also passed a resolution regarding the Rohingya crisis.
