Sialkot: Pakistan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif said on Sunday that his country wants to build good neighbourly relations with India. Talking to media persons in Sialkot, he expressed regret over the “cold” Indian response to Pakistan’s peace overtures.
He said India was ‘continuously violating the ceasefire’ at the Line of Control.
Asif said India was also sponsoring terrorism at the Durand Line (the Afghanistan-Pakistan border) to create disturbance in Pakistan.
He called for honouring the Indus Water Treaty to ensure regional peace.
He said Pakistan was a peace-loving country that wanted cordial relations with regional countries on equal basis. However, he warned, Pakistan’s overtures should not be construed as weakness. He said Pakistan is fully capable of defending its geographical boundaries.
