ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria says India doing propaganda about Balochistan to divert public attention from atrocities being committed against people by its forces in Occupied Kashmir.

Nafees Zakaria says India has been involved in terrorist activities in Balochistan and Karachi.

Talking to PTV on Saturday, he said Indian designs vis a vis Balochistan have become clear to the entire world.

The spokesperson said the Indian defence minister himself stated that India would use terrorists to secure its interests.

He said former US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel also stated that India had been using the Afghan soil to destabilize Pakistan.

The Spokesperson said India is doing propaganda about Balochistan only to divert public attention from the atrocities being committed against the innocent people by its forces in Occupied Kashmir.

To a question, Nafees Zakaria said many countries want that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is not accomplished.

To another question, the spokesperson said Pakistan and Afghanistan enjoy cordial relations; however, the unfavourable statements issued by the Afghan leadership from time to time are unhelpful for improving the ties. He said border management is beneficial for the either country.

He said Pakistan will not let use of its soil against any country, and expects reciprocation from the other countries.

To a question, Nafees Zakaria said Pakistan’s relations with Russia and the Central Asian states are improving.
