Evidence of Indian terrorism in Pakistan from Kulbhushan’s arrest: FO

The Foreign Office (FO) said on Friday that the arrest of Indian spy chief Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was found to be involved in spying, terrorist, and subversive activities in Pakistan, and his continued presence are proof of New Delhi’s repeated involvement in terrorism in the country.

FO Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said that Pakistan wants peace in the area and with all of its neighbours, including India, during her weekly press conference in Islamabad.

“We also expect India to take steps to make it easier for Pakistan and India to talk about all of their disagreements, including the main issue of Jammu and Kashmir,” she said.

The spokesperson denied any claim, even from Indian officials, that Islamabad is linked to terrorism. She said, “We think recent Indian comments about this are unjustified and have no basis.”

Baloch talked about the upcoming Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Foreign Ministers Conference in India. He said that Pakistan has always been committed to cooperation in the area and that we will also do our part to help the SCO grow and succeed.

She said that even if something bad happened or someone said something bad, it wouldn’t stop Pakistan from doing its part in the body, which Pakistan is an equal member of.

Concerning the evacuation of stranded Pakistanis from Sudan, the spokesman said that 847 Pakistanis have been moved from Khartoum to Port Sudan. Some of them have already been moved to Jeddah, and others are being moved there on ferries run by the Saudi government.

“We are working with friendly countries in the area, and we are especially thankful to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for making this process easier by sending a ferry from Port Sudan to Jeddah and housing Pakistani citizens until they can go home,” she said.
