Pakistan Accuses New Delhi of Creating Terror Sanctuaries in India

Shah Mehmood Qureshi has stated that Pakistan has cleared all terrorists from its soil and terrorists were actually operating from the other side of the border. Pakistan Foreign Minister also stated that Pakistan wants peace with India, but it is very concerned over the deteriorating human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Imran Khan Raises Human Rights Violation in Jammu and Kashmir with UN President

In an exclusive interview to BBC, Qureshi said India is not managing its side well and UN Human Rights and All Parties Parliamentary Group on Kashmir in their separate reports have highlighted atrocities and grave human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian troops.

To a question, he said Pakistan will welcome anyone from Britain and across the world to visit Azad Kashmir as it has nothing to hide.

Regarding Pakistan’s role in restoring peace in Afghanistan, the foreign minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan has been consistently saying that there is no military solution to the situation in Afghanistan. He said only a negotiated and political settlement can restore peace in the war-torn country.

He said US President Donald Trump has expressed his interest to engage with the Afghan Taliban and Pakistan has played a positive role in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table.

Answering a question regarding Pak-US ties, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said a reset is taking place in the relationships between the two countries as Americans have more confidence in the PTI government.

Replying to a question, the Foreign Minister said no terrorist sanctuary exists in our side of the border as we have cleared our soil of terrorists. He said if any terrorist safe haven exists it is on another side of the border. Responding to another query, he said Prime Minister Imran Khan will meet anyone, including Donald Trump if it is in Pakistan’s national interest.
