Pakistan does not intervene in other countries’ affairs: Fatemi


Adviser to the Prime Minister for Foreign Affairs Syed Tariq Fatemi said Pakistan had the policy of not intervening in the affairs of other countries.

“Pakistan wanted cordial relations with all countries, including the United States,” he said talking to a TV channel.

He said the US did not have a policy of inviting foreign leaders for president’s inaugural ceremony, but anyone could be called in a private capacity.

He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif believed in a peaceful neighbourhood policy, and Pakistan was enjoying good ties with many countries.

Fatemi said Pakistan had rendered sacrifices in the war against terrorism, which were highly appreciated and acknowledged internationally.

The operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched for the complete elimination of terrorism from the country, he added.

Pakistan, he said, had assured Afghanistan that its soil could not be used against any country.

He said India had failed in getting Pakistan isolated in the world.

He said the international community and some Indian intellectuals admitted that the Kashmir movement was an indigenous freedom struggle. The prime minister had courageously highlighted the Kashmir issue at international forums, he added.

Commenting on the tension between Saudi Arabia and Iran, he said Pakistan had played a pivotal role in defusing tensions between the two countries.

To a query, he said China was assisting and investing in various sectors in Pakistan, which would bring visible changes within five years.


  1. WHAT A JOKE. Pakistanis always has a habit of medelling in the affairs of other country. You think that by supporting an unrest in other country, you can gain territorial dividends, but you forget that other can also creat unrest in your country and can gain territorial dividends. Don't ever think that you are very clever, you can also be made to pay in the same way as you try to make other pay.
