Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said on Thursday that Pakistan was not ready to join any arms race in the South Asian region.
The spokesperson was doing the routine weekly press briefing .When asked in regards to India’s recent obtainment of Rafale jet from France.
Pakistan urges the world to refrain from pushing this region into an arms race.
“Pakistan knows how to protect itself. It does not matter if its a Rafale or any other fighter jet. The whole world is a spectator to the episode of February 27.”
“The main focus of this government is on youth development, education and health.”
Expressing concern over the endless curfew and heinous human rights violations in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK), Dr Faisal said, “Pakistan urges the lifting of all sorts of limitations and blockage of human rights violations in the valley.”
“We do not foresee any good from India. Those who are siding New Delhi, they should remain standing with it. It does not make any difference.”
“Pakistan is putting forward the situation of IOK on every platform. We are determined to settle the matter as per the wish of the people who are arrested in an evident prison.”
The spokesperson also welcomed the visit of US senators to Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and hoped the horridness in IOK would soon be unearthed to the world.
Faisal said despite Indian efforts to cover up brutalities in the valley, the plight of the Kashmiri people was being recognised across the world.
