Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said that India will fail in its nefarious designs to conspire against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Qureshi said that evidence of India’s support for terrorist activities was presented in a dossier shared in a press conference held alongside Director General Inter-Services Public Relations Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar.
“The evidence shows how India is backing terrorists and how India seeks to target CPEC projects,” he said. Qureshi said Pakistan’s future as well as that of the region is linked to CPEC. “We are committed to ensuring all possible security [for the project],” he said.
“China also understands the importance of CPEC, so it has sent a clear message on security,” said the foreign minister. He said Pakistan will work with China to protect CPEC and complete its associated projects. Qureshi said that all the concerns expressed in the dossier will be raised at the United Nations and all major international forums. “Pakistan is working for stability in the region, including peace in Afghanistan,” he said.
