Modi govt can do anything for political purposes: Qureshi


Staff Reporter


While referring on Tuesday to the Pulwama attack Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said there was an irresponsible government in Delhi that could do anything for political purposes.
He added that Pakistan has continuously been exposing India’s true face. “In the November 14 dossier, we presented to the world irrefutable evidence of India’s support for terrorists,” the foreign minister said, adding that an investigation by the EU DisinfoLab has confirmed Pakistan’s concerns about India’s false propaganda campaign to discredit Pakistan globally.
He further stated that the international community has a responsibility to hold India accountable for the lack of peace in the region. “The world has come to know that India, which they considered a secular state, is ruled by a fascist, Hindutva government,” he added.
The foreign minister reiterated that Pakistan wants peace and stability in the region, including in Afghanistan. “We want the intra-Afghan dialogue to be successful and reach its logical conclusion. There are some elements inside and outside Afghanistan that are playing the role of spoilers,” the foreign minister observed.
He underscored that the federal government has clarified its policy on Palestine. “Banners denouncing Israel are being put up in Karachi for political purposes,” he said. “When the government has clarified its policy on Palestine, then there is no question of recognising Israel,” Qureshi stated.
He said the Pakistan Democratic Movement wants to hide the growing chaos and save its declining reputation, whereas, the foreign minister added, the PPP was “playing on both sides of the wicket and using PDM to achieve its own goals”.
