India Wants to Sabotage Afghan Peace Process: FO

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office says the UN Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Report has endorsed its stance that Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) operating from Afghanistan and supported by India threatens regional countries including Pakistan.

In a statement on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said Pakistan has been highlighting India’s sponsorship of terrorist organizations in Afghanistan.

She said we have proposed the listing of several Indian terrorism facilitators on the UN Security Council’s terrorism list along with evidence of their involvement in terrorism. She hoped the Security Council will designate them soon.

The Spokesperson pointed out that the Monitoring Team has also assessed that foreign terrorist fighters from India are travelling to Afghanistan to join the ISIL-Khorasan. Security Council resolutions require India to prevent the travel of terrorists to Afghanistan to join the ISIL-K. The report also notes that an Indian national, the leader of Al-Qaeda in the Indian sub-continent, was killed by international forces last year in Afghanistan. She recalled that the previous reports of the monitoring team also highlight the growing strength of ISIL in India and its role in Easter Sunday attack in 2019.

The spokesperson said India has been using terrorism as state policy to destabilize its neighbouring states, including Pakistan. She said the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir have long suffered from India’s state terrorism, especially after the cruel lockdown and oppression imposed by the RSS inspired BJP led extremist government since 5th August last year.
