Adviser to the Prime Minister for Foreign Affairs, Syed Tariq Fatemi said that Pakistan had a policy of not intervening in the affairs of other countries.
Pakistan wanted good cordial relations with all countries, including United States, he said while talking to PTV. He said the US did not have policy of inviting foreign leaders for president’s inaugural ceremony but anyone could be called in private capacity.
He said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif believed in a peaceful neighbourhood policy and Pakistan was enjoying good ties with many countries.
Tariq Fatemi said Pakistan had rendered tremendous sacrifices in the war against terrorism, which were highly appreciated and acknowledged internationally. The operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched for the complete annihilation of terrorists from the country, he added.
Pakistan, he said, had assured Afghanistan that its soil could not be used against any country.
He said India had failed in getting Pakistan isolated in the world. He said the international community and some Indian intellectuals admitted that the Kashmir movement was totally indigenous freedom struggle. The prime minister had courageously highlighted the Kashmir issue at international forums, he added.
Commenting on tension between Saudi Arabia and Iran, he said Pakistan had played a pivotal role in defusing tension between the two countries.
To a query, he said China was assisting and investing in various sectors of Pakistan which would bring visible change within five years.
