Pakistan calls upon int’l community to take notice of Modi's statement: FO

Islamabad, 10 June, (Asiantribune.com):

Pakistan has called upon the international community to take notice of Indian acknowledgement of its interference in East Pakistan.

In a statement in Islamabad today, Foreign Office Spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's admission of Indian involvement in the events of 1971 in the then East Pakistan confirms Pakistan’s stance on India’s negative role against a sovereign neighbouring state.

The Spokesperson said it is regrettable that the Indian politicians not only indulge in actions that are in violation of the United Nations’ Charter but also take pride in recalling their interference in the internal affairs of other states.

The Spokesperson reiterated that the people of Pakistan and Bangladesh are bound not only by the strong bonds of religious affinity but also by the history of their struggle for independence against colonial rule. He said Indian attempts to sow seeds of discord between the two brotherly nations will not succeed.

With reference to Modi’s allegations against Pakistan at Dhaka University, the Spokesperson underlined that Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence and maintaining good neighbourly relations with India but characterization of bilateral relations by the Indian prime minister as “nuisance” is unfortunate.
