Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria says India’s unfounded allegations against Islamabad are in fact aimed at hiding its own terrorist activities in Pakistan.
Commenting on media reports about failure of Indian move in UN Security Council’s 1267 Sanctions Committee, he said replete with baseless allegations, the Indian proposal had no merit and was aimed at advancing its narrow national agenda.
Nafees Zakaria said Pakistan has been a direct victim of India’s state sponsored terrorism and confessions of RAW’s agent Kulbhushan Yadav about his involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan proves this fact.
He said more evidence of India’s involvement in terrorism inside Pakistan will also be shared with the United Nations and international community.
The spokesman reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to continue close cooperation with international community in its collective endeavors for elimination of terrorism.
He said Pakistan has made significant contribution and rendered enormous sacrifices in success of international community’s efforts against terrorism.
The spokesman reaffirmed Pakistan’s solidarity with Turkey in the wake of new terrorist attack in Istanbul in which thirty nine innocent people were killed.
He said government and people of Pakistan are deeply anguished at this despicable act of terrorism against defenseless people who had gathered for New Year celebration.
The statement also reaffirmed Pakistan`s condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and the country`s support to Turkey in its fight against this menace.
