Islamabad News: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi attacked New Delhi on Wednesday for “threatening regional peace with its aggressive attitude” because of tensions between China and India. The soldiers participated in the dispute.
“India’s intentions do not look good,” said FM Qureshi, speaking to Geo News. “India has already heated up the occupied Kashmir front and you know very well its attitude towards Nepal [on border issue],” he said, adding that New Delhi was also sabotaging peace in Afghanistan.
He blamed India for giving rise to tensions in the region by carrying out construction activities in territory that was considered disputed between it and China. “A war was fought between India and China in 1962 and again, India is resorting to aggressive posturing in the same territory,” he said.
The Foreign Minister urged the Indian government to show responsible behavior by using “dialogue and consultation mechanisms to resolve disputes”.
Qureshi commented on the meeting between Prime Minister Modi and national security adviser Ajit Doval and the head of the armed services regarding the border dispute with China, saying that India ’s intentions in the region remain to be seen.
“Pakistan has said this over and over again. I have said this to the UN Secretary-General and written letters to the UN Security Council that India is threatening peace [in the region] through its aggressive behaviour,” he said.
