Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday accused India of interfering in the country’s internal affairs and claimed that New Delhi was involved in financing terror activities in the region. “The entire world knows that India is interfering in Pakistan’s internal matters,” said Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria during a media briefing and added that “the arrest of Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav from Pakistan’s soil is a proof of this”.
Indian national Kulbhushan Yadav was arrested in March 2016 in Balochistan on charges of being a RAW agent, fuelling the Baloch separatist movement and attempting to sabotage the CPEC project, Geo TV reported. Earlier this month, Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, told a Senate session that the First Information Report (FIR) on Yadav was registered and a case was being prepared.
The Pakistan Foreign Office also came out in support of Muslims in Indian Kashmir who, it claimed, were victims of “atrocities” by the Indian government, the Geo TV report said. “Indian troops are opening fire at funerals of Kashmiri martyrs,” spokesperson Zakaria said. He asked the international community to urge India to stop the “genocide of innocent Kashmiris”, Geo TV reported.
