India behind anti-Pakistan poster campaign in Geneva, says FO


ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said that India has funded the anti-Pakistan campaign in Geneva, Switzerland.

Addressing a weekly press briefing, Zakaria said India is involved in creating unrest in Balochistan, adding that anti-Pakistan activities had increased after Modi’s comments on Balochistan. He claimed that Pakistan had irrefutable evidence of Indian use of Afghan soil [against Pakistan].

The FO spokesman said that the meeting between the prime ministers of Pakistan-India PMs is not on the schedule.

The FO spokesman condemned the detention of Kashmiri leaders and said that Indian forces martyred four more innocent citizens. He demanded the international community take notice of the Indian atrocities against the Kashmiri people.

Talking about Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s visit to the US to attend the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, he said the premier held positive meetings with world leaders along the sidelines of the session.

Moreover, Zakaria said that Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa will leave for Moscow in the first week of October.

The visit is a continuation of high-level contact and a reflection of a wish to improve bilateral ties. The army chief’s visit to Russia will contribute to the defence cooperation between the two countries, he added.
