India Has Allocated Billions To Sabotage CPEC Project – Pakistan FM Qureshi

Pakistan FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi has blamed India for scheming to destabilize the CPEC project and but said New Delhi will not succeed in its nefarious designs, as Islamabad is taking diplomatic steps to thwart the conspiracies.

Addressing a ceremony in Multan, Qureshi said Islamabad has strong proof of Indian involvement in supporting terrorists and banned organizations to create unrest in Pakistan.

Qureshi said the global community has already been informed about Indian involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan by sharing a dossier in this regard last month. He said the Disinfo Lab has also exposed India’s conspiracies against Pakistan.

Qureshi further added that India has allocated billions of rupees to damage China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and sabotage the peace process in Afghanistan. He said India’s nefarious designs can create a law and order situation in the region and its consequence would be disastrous.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, seven paramilitary soldiers of Pakistan were killed in a terrorist attack on a check post in Balochistan, the army said in a statement. The attack occurred in the Harnai district of Balochistan province, which is a vital route to the multi-billion dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

CPEC, the $64 billion flagship project of the Belt and Road Initiative, aims to connect China’s Xinxiang province to the Gwadar seaport through a network of roads, railways and pipelines to transport cargo, oil, and gas.

According to experts in Pakistan, India strongly objects to CPEC running through Pakistan-administered-Kashmir, a region claimed by New Delhi and is covertly supporting terror organizations in Balochistan to counter Pakistan’s support for Kashmir’s independence movement.
