Islamabad, 9 February 2022 (TDI): Pakistan’s Foreign Office Spokesperson, Asim Iftikhar urged the international community to help Afghanistan and not abandon it in times of crisis.

He gave the earlier mentioned statement in an exclusive interview with Radio Pakistan’s News and Current Affairs Channel.

Pakistan’s Interest and Role

Asim Iftikhar stated that peace and stability in the neighboring country, Afghanistan is in our own interest too. He further underscored that Pakistan always wanted its neighbor Afghanistan to be strong and stable.

The instability has been chronic now. This instability has not only adversely impacted Afghanistan but has also negatively affected Pakistan.

Asim Ifthikhar underscored that Pakistan always stressed that no military solution exists to the prevailing imbalance. Pakistan being the immediate neighbor has a huge responsibility to assist its brother country.

He added that Pakistan has taken responsibility and has played a vital role that had effective and positive outcomes. Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar also shed light on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s sessions that were held in Pakistan.

The sessions were conducted in the country the previous year. Around thirty Foreign Ministers attended the sessions. War-torn Afghanistan and the prevailing humanitarian crisis remained the major topic of the sessions. The outcomes of the sessions were fruitful.

Kashmir Issue

Asim Iftikhar additionally discussed the contemporary Kashmir issue and the humanitarian crisis there. Unilateral actions of India are clearly a violation of human rights, he stated.

Over 900,000 Indian troops are there in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). The purpose of the deployment of such massive numbers of troops is crystal clear.

The purpose is to bring demographic changes. To be more precise convert the Muslim majority to minority. Moreover, the Spokesperson said that the measures taken by India are against humanity.

Not only that but clearly against the United Nations Security Council’s resolutions. Additionally, against international law and Geneva Convention.
