Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz on Sunday accused ‘Modi’s India’ of acting as a regional superpower and said Pakistan is a nuclear-armed nation and knows how to defend themselves.
Aziz’s comment came after the talks between both the countries were cancelled. Pakistan had called off the NSA-level talks, hours after India made it clear that discussions on Kashmir and a meeting with separatists will not be acceptable to it.
“We are a nuclear-armed country and we know how to defend ourselves,” said Dawn quoting Aziz
He also told the newspaper that he have the evidence of RAW’s involvement in fuelling terrorism in Pakistan.
Stating that India on the other hand only has propaganda against Pakistan, Aziz added “India wants normalisation on their own terms, they would like to talk about trade and connectivity but not much else.”
He also questioned, “If Kashmir is not an issue for, why India have stationed 700,000 troops in Indian-occupied Kashmir?”
A day back, Pakistan accused Modi government of “sabotaging” the NSA-level talks with its “fanatic approach” and said its “negative attitude” was aimed at disrupting peace in the region.
Claiming that Pakistan was “serious” in holding the talks with India, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said this was the best way to resolve bilateral issues.
The Pakistani Defence Minister also said that Pakistan’s armed forces are fully capable of protecting its frontiers and sovereignty of the country.
