He blamed India and America for promoting terrorism in Pakistan, saying both of them were enemies of Pakistan, who wanted to created war-like situation in the country. He said that BJP ran terrorism camps in India. He suggested to the foreign minister to prepare a strong case regarding Indian terrorism in Pakistan and move UN’s security council on this issue.

He said that recovery of Indian arms from the office of a political party in Karachi made the situation further clear. He asked Mian Nawaz Sharif to take the benefit of the situation and get Indian terrorism camps eliminated from Afghanistan.

He praised Mian Nawaz Sharif for not declaring India Most Favoured Nation.
