Pakistan should take steps to stop "production of terrorism" from its territory, then the country may benefit.
Pakistan’s role in supporting terrorism has been exposed to the world. Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today told Time Now TV: “The duet between Pakistan and terrorism has been exposed… Now the entire world has seen it.” Naqvi further said that the “pollution emanating from Pakistani terror factories is affecting the entire world.” When asked about Pakistan’s claim that the Uri attack, in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani terrorists, Naqvi said: “Today, Pakistan has been exposed to the world as the terrorist state. So the country would not benefit by giving any such arguments.”
Instead, he said, Pakistan should take steps to stop “production of terrorism” from its territory, then the country may benefit. Commenting on Pakistani PM’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz threat that his country would go to International Court of Justice (ICJ) if India withdraws Indus Waters Treaty, Naqvi said: “Will they go to ICZ because they are producing terrorism which is affecting the entire world. Pakistan is facing this condition today because it always protected terrorism instead of taking eradication it.”
Indian foreign Secretary S Jaishankar today issued a demarche to Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit over Uri attack and confronted him with proof of “cross-border origins” of the terror strike in which 18 jawans were killed. The Foreign Secretary called in Basit and told him that the preliminary interrogation reveals identity of one of the slain Uri attackers as Hafiz Ahmed, son of Feroz and resident of Dharbang, Muzaffarabad and also gives details of Pakistan-based handlers, MEA Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
