Pakistan to Raise Modi’s Statement at UN

The prime minister’s adviser on national security and foreign affairs, Sartaj Aziz, on Monday said Pakistan had decided to bring the Indian prime minister’s statement to the notice of the UN. 

In his statement, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi had admitted that they played a part in the break-up of Pakistan in 1971.

“We will move the UN,” said Sartaj Aziz while talking to mediapersons at the inaugural session of 10th meeting of Heads of University Grant Commission/Higher Education of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc). He ruled out talks with India on its terms. “Dialogue with India would be of no use if it does not cover Kashmir and water issues,” he added. 

Following Modi’s statement, Islamabad has been urging the international community to take notice of India’s admission to interfering in former East Pakistan, which became Bangladesh in 1971. “We want a tension-free relationship,” Mr Aziz said, adding but India opted for anti-Pakistan, hawkish and hostile approach. “They fight elections on the basis of anti-Pakistan statements,” he said.
