Ongoing tensions with India in Kashmir could affect peace process in Afghanistan: Maleeha Lodhi
In an interview with a US TV channel, she said both Afghanistan and Kashmir issues are important in their own right but it is our eastern border that we perceive a threat as India has already attacked Pakistan.
“The current crisis between Pakistan and India will obviously mean that Pakistan will have to put its full focus on its eastern border and it could affect what it is trying to do on the front with Afghanistan,” Maleeha Lodhi said.

Maleeha said that “We are examining the dossier to see if there is anything in there which we need to act upon. We will act if there is any solid evidence, but we cannot act on the basis of allegations.
Pertaining to a question on Kashmir issue, the Pakistani envoy said that the issue has to be addressed, in its own right and on its own merits because Kashmir will remain an issue that will lead to repeated tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbouring countries.
“In any case, it is an issue that is on the Security Council agenda and it has resolutions that remain unimplemented,” the ambassador added.
