ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on National Security Dr Moeed Yusuf on Saturday while asserting Pakistan’s unwavering support for Kashmiris said that there could be no talks unless India takes concrete steps to reverse the situation on the ground in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and stops sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan.
He said that dialogues with India cannot be held until New Delhi expressed willingness to resolve Kashmir dispute in accordance with UN resolutions.
“If India takes such actions and ends terrorism inside Pakistan, then both countries can work towards resolving their core issues which will benefit the common citizens of both countries,” he added.
The adviser said that Pakistan had clearly communicated to India that before any dialogue or talks could take place, it must halt demographic change in IIOJK, ensure the protection of Kashmiri identity and give Kashmiris their rights.
“The government and the people of Pakistan would remain committed to the Kashmir cause till such time that the Kashmiris were granted their right to self-determination under UNSC resolutions,” he said.
Providing details of Indian sponsorship of terrorism against Pakistan, Dr Moeed said Pakistan has evidence of India’s involvement in terrorism to derail regional peace and had provided a detailed dossier with evidences on Indian involvement in terrorism inside Pakistan.
He also provided information on Indian intelligence agency (RAW) involvement in the Johar Town blast in Lahore last month, saying that evidence of banking transactions, telephone records and cyber attacks revealed direct involvement of India in the attacks.
He said Pakistani leadership has spent over 15,000 hours in trying to convince all parties in the Afghan conflict to sit together and find a negotiated inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan for peace and stability because Pakistan did not want a protracted war in Afghanistan.
