Pakistan concerned over US decision to sell air defence weapon system to India

Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui has said that United States decision to sell air defence weapon system to India as disturbing which will de-stabilise the already volatile situation in the region.

Addressing a weekly press briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, she said the sale of such dangerous weapons will have negative impacts in the region, especially for Pakistan. She added the defence relations between India and US will result in worsening the security situation in South Asia.

Farooqui maintained that the international community is well aware of India’s aggressive policy towards Pakistan and it should take steps to prevent de-stabilization in the region.

The FO spokesperson pointed out that India has committed violation at LoC and ‘unprovoked’ shelling several times in which hundreds of innocent civilians have been killed.

She said Pakistan fears that India could carry out a false flag operation on the high-profile visits of international leaders, including Turkuish President Erdogan, US President Donald Trump and the UN secretary general.

She said Indian provocations are designed to divert global attention from its state terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and from its internal situation after the August 5, 2019 move.

She said that the Armed Forces of Pakistan are fully prepared to give a befitting response to any misadventure from the Indian side.

To a question regarding Trump’s offer to help settle Kashmir issue, she said that the US president had on many occasions showed commitment to resolve the matter and Pakistan hopes he will act as promised.

Regarding coronavirus, Aisha said that the authorities are constantly in contact with Pakistani students stranded in China and they will be brought back as soon as the situation normalizes.
