  • Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakara

In response to a media query regarding Khawaja Asif's comments at the Asia Society in NY, the Spokesperson said that while referring to anti-Pakistan Indian activities in Afghanistan such as the launch of terrorist attacks in Pakistan with the help of the terrorists outfits based in Afghanistan namely; TTP, JuA, LeJ, etc., the Foreign Minister also mentioned Kulbushan Jhadev, a serving Indian Naval Officer working for Indian intelligence agency RAW.

In the wake of the USA calling for an increased participation in the efforts in war-torn Afghanistan, India urged the UNSC on Tuesday to place sanctions on groups funding terrorism in Afghanistan, many of which have safe havens in Pakistan. "We are mindful of the strong desire in the USA to bring the long war in Afghanistan to an end", he said.

Last Monday, the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat said that India might resort to carry out another surgical strike if necessary as it did in September previous year in Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson, Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said that India can not deny use of pellet guns against Kashmiris. "It is time for Pakistan to demonstrate its commitment to civilization, order, and to peace", he added. "Pakistan also works closely with the worldwide community and the global Atomic Energy Agency in the areas of nuclear safety and security", he said. "The fact that there are groups based in Pakistan which are threatening the security of Afghanistan and (they) continue to receive support and continue to embark upon destabilizing activities and acts of terror in Afghanistan".

Mattis, who was in India before arriving in Kabul, said the South Asia strategy announced by the President in August was an opportunity for Pakistan.

The foreign minister also said Hafiz Saeed, Lashkar-e-Taiba were liabilities for his country. "These groups are being used to foment unrest and orchestrate terrorist attacks in Pakistan and other regional countries", he said. He also said that Foreign Minister's foreign tour was successful and all his targets were achieved.

Under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) initiative, thousands of Chinese workers are living in Pakistan, and Ahsan Iqbal labeled them as "national heroes".

The Pakistan Foreign Minister, however, did not specify whether any proposal was made to the Indian and Afghan authorities over the swapping of Kulbhushan and the terrorist in Afghan custody.
