ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that India’s Hindutva agenda and intransigence will destroy peace and security in the region.
In a statement on Wednesday, he said that China made the utmost efforts to resolve the border issue with India peacefully but India continued construction in the disputed territory, rejecting China’s concerns.
The foreign minister said that India’s intransigence led to a spat on June 9 which has turned into a blood clash.
Qureshi said that over 20 Indian troops have reportedly been killed, which is an unusual incident. He added that this happened because of the Hindutva philosophy of the Indian government.
The minister said that China has a principled stance. He said that the 3500-kilometer long area of Tibet and Ladakh is a disputed territory between China and India, and if India thinks that it will be able to occupy it, it will not be acceptable for China.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan has rejected India’s unilateral steps on August 5 last year and China has raised objections over them.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan is a peace-loving Country and desires peace in the region. He said that our efforts for the Afghan peace process are before the world.
Qureshi said that if India believes that its aggressive posture will influence anyone, it is mistaken. He said that we offered to resolve all issues with India through dialogue but it was not responded.
