RAW agent Kulbhushan's confession exposes Indian terrorism in Pakistan: Khawaja Asif
ISLAMABAD - Federal Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif said that the state would not offer any concession to those who inflicted war in Pakistan and they would be dealt with iron hands.

"The federal minister said that Indian agent Kulbhushan Yadav's confession is a public document and it proved that Indian government was sponsoring him to destabilise Pakistan", Khawaja said while talking to Geo TV on Monday.

The defence minister made it clear that Yadav’s sentencing was according to the law. Khawaja Asif added that all constitutional force would be used against those acting against the sovereignty of Pakistan.

“Soldiers and civilians of Pakistan have given sacrifices for this country and their sacrifices demand us to give a befitting reply to terrorists and those who aid and facilitate them.”


Replying to the question of dealing this issue on diplomatic and political front, he said that Pakistan would present the issue on every international forum.

He said that Pakistan's endeavor against terrorism has been accepted by the entire world.

Pakistan has sentenced an Indian RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi, the ISPR said Monday.

Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has confirmed death sentence awarded by the FGCM under the Pakistan Army Act (PAA).

According to an ISPR press release, Kulbhusan Sundir Yadav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel was arrested on March 3, 2016, through a Counter-Intelligence Operation from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage actives in Pakistan.

Yadav was believed to be an on-duty officer for the Indian Navy and confessed his crimes in a recorded video statement televised by the ISPR last year following his arrest.
