ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday warned India against mistaking Pakistan’s desire for peace as weakness.
Talking to a private television channel, Qureshi said, “We will give a befitting response if India casts an evil eye on Pakistan.” He said that regional peace and stability is the top priority of the country.
The foreign minister said that India had established a special cell to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. He added that New Delhi had allocated Rs80 billion for the cell tasked with sabotaging the flagship project.
Qureshi said that Islamabad will not remain silent on Indian tactics to destroy peace in the neighbouring countries and will take the matter at the international level. He said that India is planning terrorist activities against Pakistan.
Earlier on November 14, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar had said that a RAW officer Anurag Singh was the mastermind of Gwadar PC hotel attack.
“[Outlawed] BLF [Baloch Liberation Front] and BLA [Balochistan Liberation Army] were involved in attacking PC Hotel in Gwadar and a RAW officer Anurag Singh planned the attack. Singh had been given $0.5 million for carrying out the attack on Gwadar’s hotel, whereas, Dr Allah Nazar acted as a communicator between terrorists and India.”
