Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, in his weekly briefing, expressed that after the HoA conference last year, India celebrated the adoption of the list as a huge diplomatic success and started misusing the list for political point scoring but due to Pakistan's successful diplomacy, the list was taken off.
“Pakistan had agreed to the list with positive intent... but subsequent Indian behaviour, [i.e.] trying to use the listing of these groups to malign Pakistan forced us to suggest a comprehensive list,” said Dr Faisal.
The official maintained that at the recently held Heart of Asia conference in Baku, Pakistan took a principle stance that selective listing should be avoided and all terrorist groups should be condemned without discrimination.
He continued that member countries had agreed to drop the list from the recent declaration and had referred the matter to the Working Group on Counter-Terrorism, which would come up with a comprehensive list of all terrorist groups in the Heart of Asia region.
Dr Faisal clarified that the first phase of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would be completed by 2020 while the entire project would be functional by 2030.
The FO spokesperson said that Pakistan and China regularly monitored the progress of CPEC projects, adding that the decision to include more projects and highways in the economic corridor would be taken after mutual consensus.
Talking about the Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, Faisal said visas had been issued to his wife and mother and their meeting would take place in Islamabad on Dec 25.
"The meeting between Jadhav and his family would be held in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs." noted the offcial.
