Pakistan is a Reality, India Has No Option But To Accept Our Existence: President Alvi

Pakistan President Arif Alvi asserted that Pakistan is a reality and India will have to accept that. Addressing the Pakistan Day joint military parade in Islamabad, the Alvi congratulated the nation and said, “March 23 is that milestone of our national history in which Muslims of the subcontinent aimed for their liberation through Pakistan Resolution.”

“Independence demands sacrifices. We suffered loss of lives and finances in the War on Terror but today Pakistan is an upcoming economy,” Alvi stated.

President Alvi said Pakistan’s “sovereignty had been challenged in the past and wars were imposed on us” but the nation fought back. “Pakistan respects the sovereignty of all countries’ sovereignty and wishes peace but our desire for peace should not be mistaken as a sign of weakness,” he asserted.

Speaking about the recent escalation in tensions between the two countries, the president said, “Pakistan is a reality and India should accept facts and not make the mistake to view it in the pre-partition light. Doing so would be very dangerous for the region’s stability.”

“Instead of wars, we should focus on providing health, education and employment. Our real war is against unemployment and poverty.” Dr Alvi added, “Responding to Indian aggression was our right. Through our plan of action we responded to India immediately and effectively,” he added.

“We responded to the enemy befittingly,” he reiterated. The president stated, “Being a democratic nation, Pakistan believes in dialogue.” “India’s attitude was irresponsible,” he regretted. “After the Pulwama attack, India blamed Pakistan without any evidence. India did not adhere to international laws and violated Pakistan’s airspace.”

President Alvi asserted, “We are a peaceful nation but know how to defend ourselves.” “Terrorism is the biggest threat the peace in the world. Peace in Afghanistan is necessary for everlasting peace in Pakistan,” he added.

The president further said the participation of the representatives of Pakistan’s friendly countries including Saudi Arabia, China, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Bahrain and Sri Lanka has added valour to today’s military parade and this signifies our friendship with these countries.
