India has not denied allegations of target killings in Pakistan: FO
Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zehra Baloch has said that India has never denied allegations of target killings in Pakistan.
She was addressing to weekly press briefing in Islamabad on Thursday at the foreign office.
The FO spokesperson said that allegations of terrorism against Pakistan by India are not new, the Modi-led regime even declared them terrorists who criticise the Indian cricket team.
She reiterated that Pakistan shared credible evidence linking Indian agents to extra-territorial and extra-judicial killings of two Pakistani nationals on Pakistani soil which exposed the increasing sophistication and brazenness of Indian-sponsored terrorist acts inside Pakistan, with striking similarities with the pattern observed in other countries, including Canada and the United States.
The spokesperson told the media that as part of its proactive diplomacy and deepening engagement with Small Island Developing States, Pakistan has formally established diplomatic relations with St. Kitts & Nevis in the Caribbean and the Marshall Islands in the Pacific. Over the last three years, Pakistan has established diplomatic relations with Palau, Kiribati, and the Dominican Republic.
Zehra announced that Foreign Minister Jilani will participate in a roundtable session on ‘Economic Resilience and Investment’ to underscore investment opportunities for foreign investors in Pakistan.
She also recalled the visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on January 29, who held in-depth meetings with FM Jilani and met with Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar and the Chief of Army Staff.
The two sides agreed to further strengthen institutional mechanisms on security cooperation and to immediately appoint liaison officers in Turbat and Zahedan, besides establishing a Joint Coordination Mechanism at the level of Foreign Ministers to oversee and steer progress on a common agenda for prosperity and development.
