ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said he did not see much hope from this (Modi) government in India for the solution of Kashmir issue.
In an interview with VRT, a Belgian broadcaster, he said the problem in India right now was that they had an extremist ideology of RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh), inspired by the Nazis in 30s.
“The founding fathers of the RSS, which is now ruling India, were inspired by Hitler…the racist Arian philosophy of Hitler. That’s why they have put eight million Kashmiris, who are Muslims, in an open prison,” he remarked.
About Pakistan’s economic situation, he said, 2019 was a very difficult year for Pakistan. “But now fortunately we have brought the current account deficit down by 75 percent in one year which was tough but good and I expect this year 2020 where Pakistan’s economy will show signs of recovery,” he added.
The prime minister said since his government came to power, he had left no stone unturned so that there would be peace in Afghanistan, and fortunately things were moving in the right direction. Imran Khan, however, added that it was not going to be so easy because there had been 19 years of conflict.
To a question about the fight against terrorism, he mentioned that 70,000 Pakistanis lost their lives during 10 to 12 years period.
expressed his optimism about peace and stability in Afghanistan through a possible agreement between the United States and Taliban, saying for the first time things were moving in the right direction.
