In a tweet he said the enemy cannot undermine Pakistan’s resolve and “we will spare no effort to bring the culprits to justice”.

Three people including two children were killed and three other injured in a bomb blast near Expressway in Gwadar last night.

The injured have been shifted to civil hospital Gwadar.

According to preliminary information, a suicide bonmber blew himself up aiming to target a vehicle carrying Chinese nationals.

Chinese nationals, who were working on the under-construction East-Bay Expressway, were returning to their camp when the vehicle was hit by the blast.

TRT interview

Fawad, in an interview to TRT earlier, stated that the back of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other terrorist organisations like Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) would be broken if they did not receive any funds from India.

He said Pakistan wanted that the government in Afghanistan to be inclusive having representation of all groups.

“We believe that the people of Afghanistan have the right to make decisions inside Afghanistan but the regional countries can play their role in enabling stability in the war-torn country.”

Fawad said Pakistan was in touch with all the regional countries including China, Turkey, United States of America and United Kingdom.

Countries of the region could play their role for peace and stability in Afghanistan, he said adding Prime Minister Imran Khan had called leaders of all the world powers and trying to come up with the strategy that decision making was not done in isolation, it should be collective and take the situation inside Afghanistan towards stability.

“Pakistan tried to create a positive environment and persuaded the Taliban and the United States to negotiate,” the minister said.

To a question, he said Pakistan did not control the Taliban and it did not have decision making powers with the Taliban.

However he said Pakistan was in touch with all groups in Afghanistan and had hosted a delegation of Afghan Parliament here.

“We are in touch with all Afghan factions and want installation of all inclusive dispensation in Kabul having representation of all the factions,” he said.
