Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan said India is fanning terrorism in Pakistan through the Afghan soil, reported Radio Pakistan.

Talking to media in Rawalpindi on Thursday, he said spreading fake news through media is also one of the strategies of India against Pakistan.

He said New Delhi is committing ceasefire violations and targeting the innocent civilians at the Line of Control due to its vested interests. He said Pakistan Army is befittingly responding to the Indian unprovoked firing at LoC.

The defence minister said that defence cooperation between Pakistan and China is rapidly increasing.

He said Pakistan also enjoys good relations with Russia and dialogue regarding defence cooperation is in progress with the Russian federation.

Khurram Dastgir said our civilians and armed forces have rendered unrivalled sacrifices in war on terror.

He said now we have to reaffirm our commitment that no one will be allowed to reverse the gains in countering the terrorism.

Khurram Dastagir said Pakistan has embarked on the road towards development and prosperity after getting rid of the darkness and bloodshed.
