Pakistan’s dossier enough to expose India’s true face
By: tarique siyal 08-Jan-17 KARACHI: Talking to Daily Times, Khan, who served recently as Pakistan’s ambassador to several countries including UAE and Yemen, said this is the first-ever document by the government which could not only help influence the world community but also expose Indian subversive activities inside Pakistan.
“We can reap fruits of such concrete evidence transcripted into dossier that has been furnished to the new secretary general of the United Nations. It needs to be augmented by aggressive diplomatic efforts by Pakistan, which includes all the embassies around the world, more importantly permanent mission of Pakistan in New York,” he said. Pakistan Hindu Counci … ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has taken appropriate steps in handing over a dossier on Indian involvement in Balochistan to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, said former diplomat Jamil Ahmed Khan on Saturday.
He said advantage could not be achieved only by submitting the dossier, adding that Pakistan should remain vigilant as India could try to counter this move.
On Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani’s statement in which he termed the UN as a redundant entity which listens to tunes of Western Imperialism, Khan said the chairman was right, actually the UN has failed to resolve the major issues of the world. Although, it has been serving the purposes of powerful UN Security Council members, he added.
Pakistan’s Permanent Representative in UN Dr Maleeha Lodhi on Friday delivered the dossier to the UN secretary general. She also handed over a letter from PM’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz. According to Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria, the dossier contains additional information and proof of Indian/RAW interference in Pakistan and involvement in terrorism, particularly in Balochistan, FATA and Karachi. This is a follow up of the three dossiers shared with the UN in October 2015.
In his letter, Aziz noted that the arrest of Indian RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadev from Balochistan and his confessional statement admitting involvement in activities aimed at destabilising Pakistan and support to terrorists vindicated Pakistan’s longstanding position about India’s involvement in such activities. India was carrying out these activities in a clear breach of the UN Charter and the resolutions of the UN Security Council on counter-terrorism and international conventions on terrorism. India’s hostile intentions towards Pakistan were also borne out by recent statements of its political and military leadership.
Aziz urged the UN secretary general and relevant UN bodies to consider the matter in the light of information shared by Pakistan and play a role in restraining India from these activities, which were in clear violation of international laws and posed a threat to regional and international peace and security.
