Islamabad: Pakistan has said Afghanistan should take measures to not allow its soil to be used against Pakistan.
“Afghanistan should take measures for not allowing its soil to be used against Pakistan. Indian intelligence agency RAW personnel in Afghanistan and other Taliban terrorists groups are involved in terror-related activities in Pakistan. Mullah Fazlullah is the mastermind of the terrorist attack on the Army Public School, Peshawar,” said Foreign Office (FO) spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal during his weekly press briefing here Thursday.
He said that Pakistan had provided several pieces of evidence of the acts of terror to Afghanistan and asked it to take action against the terrorists. But no positive response has been received from the neighbouring country.
He said that Pakistan has evidence about RAW’s rapport with Afghanistan. The US and Afghan governments have been informed about this.
Talking about brutalities committed by Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir, he said, “We condemn the atrocities committed by Indian troops against unarmed Kashmiris and the human rights violations by them in Kupwara and other areas. Illegal activities of the Indian occupation forces are continuing in held Kashmir and 12 Kashmiris have been martyred during operations.”
India has kept 800 Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders under illegal detention, he said. Pakistan strongly condemned the inhuman treatment being meted out by India to the people of Kashmir, he added.
He stated that Indian high commissioner was summoned on persistent violations of the ceasefire agreement on LoC by Indian troops.
Responding to a question, he said a reply from India about Kulbhushan Yadav meeting with his wife had been received. India had also requested permission for Yadav’s mother to meet him. Pakistan was considering this request seriously.
He Pakistan regretted that India was making it almost impossible for Pakistanis to acquire medical visas for treatment in India. He said medical visas should be issued on humanitarian grounds. Several Pakistanis wanted to go to India for medical treatment.
