Pakistan warns India to refrain from sabotaging regional peace
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday has warned India to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of Afghanistan to sabotage regional peace.
Briefing the media about the decisions taken by the Federal Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan, Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that the cabinet also urged the international community to take notice as Indian involvement in Afghanistan’s internal affairs is aimed at creating chaos that cannot be justified in any way.
“Pakistan is playing a responsible role for an inclusive set up in Kabul and is pursuing consultations with China, Turkey and regional countries,” he said
Fawad said that Pakistan was trying to create an environment for the evacuation of stranded foreigners in Kabul.
“So far, over 3,400 people have been evacuated through air routes, while 90,000 people were received on borders,” he added.
The minister said PIA has evacuated around 1,500 people.
“Our air and land borders are open for the foreigners stranded in Kabul and we welcome those who are coming for valid reasons to Pakistan,” the minister added.
Earlier, speaking with journalists, Fawad made it clear that no compromise will be made on the clauses of the Media Development Authority (MDA) bill regarding fake news and the rights of journalists.
He; however, said the government will welcome suggestions on the remaining clauses of the proposed bill.
The information minister said the laws of five countries were studied for the establishment of the Media Development Authority.
“This authority will have two departments of Media Complaints Commission and Media Tribunal,” he said, adding that there should be no control of government on these departments and an independent commission will be established for recruitment in them.
