ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has no frustration regarding Indian missile activities but international community must take notice of such aggressive behavior, says foreign office.
During his weekly media briefing foreign office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said that Pakistan possess full capacity to answer Indian actions in same manners. Dr Faisal said that Indian official including its Prime Minister keep giving provocative statements against Pakistan even in other countries.
“Pakistan has always maintained a dignified attitude and has retaliated only when it was necessary”, he added. He said that political vendetta is at its peak against Kashmiri leaders. “Even women leaders and activists are being arrested on the ground that they protested along with the students against the rape and murder of a Muslim minor girl at Kathua”, he added.
“We note with concern the acquittal by the Indian courts in the Mecca Masjid blast. The gradual acquittal of accused of Samjhota terrorist attack, including the mastermind Swami Aseemanand, makes a travesty of the Indian judicial system”, Dr Faisal said.
Mecca Masjid blast is related to us because Pakistan has regularly lodged its concern with India regarding the lack of progress in the Samjhota terrorist attacks, in which more than 42 innocent Pakistanis lost their lives, despite a lapse of more than a decade, spokesperson said.
Replying to another question he said India is making a complete mockery of its justice system, especially while dealing with Saffron terrorism and terrorist acts committed under the garb of Hindutva and Hindu fundamentalism.
Replying to a question he said all the counter terrorism actions taken by Pakistan are in our own national interest. “We do not lodge such operations on anyone’s orders, we always have given priority to our national interests”, he said.
Regarding the recent visit of US officials to Pakistan he said that both the countries have discussed issues of mutual interests including US diplomat Col Joseph. Dr Faisal reaffirmed that the Pakistan’s relations with China are strongest in terms of diplomatic, economic, political and historical sphere.
“Pakistan has no insecurity regarding other countries’ mutual relationship”, he added. Replying to another question, he said that Pakistan wished peace and stability in Korean Peninsula and any step towards the normalization would contribute in global peace.
He also condemned the heinous suicide attacks that targeted the innocent civilians at voter registration centers in Kabul and Baghlan provinces in Afghanistan last week.—NNI
