Pakistan wants to establish friendly ties with neighbouring countries: FO
Foreign Office spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmed says Pakistan wants to establish peaceful and friendly relations with all its neighbouring countries, including India.
Responding to questions during his weekly press briefing in Islamabad on Friday, he said Pakistan is committed to have meaningful, constructive and result-oriented dialogue with India, but the onus is on New Delhi to take necessary steps to create an enabling environment.
Talking about Pak-India relations, he said ties are not good since the unilateral and illegal actions taken by the Indian regime on August 5, 2019 in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Responding to another question regarding continued oppression by the Indian forces in the held territory, the spokesperson said the international community needs to do more in checking atrocities against the innocent people of Kashmir.
Answering a query regarding return of Pakistani students to China, Asim Iftikhar said Pakistani authorities are taking up this issue with the relevant Chinese quarters so that Pakistani students can go back to China to pursue their education.
