Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has reiterated its determination to wipe out terrorism from its soil at all costs.
This was stated by Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday.
The spokesperson expressed concern over the increase in Indian brutality in the occupied valley of Kashmir.
Zakaria noted that there has been a rise in atrocities by occupying Indian forces in Kashmir. He said more than 18,000 Kashmiris are missing while Indian troops are using rape as a weapon to subdue the people in the valley.
He pointed out that India is trying to scare families of Hurriyat leaders. There has also been an increase in atrocities against Muslims, Christians and Dalits in India, he added. He urged the international community to take notice of the continuing Indian aggression.
He said Pakistan had offered to arrange medical treatment of Kashmiris injured by pellet guns but India had refused. The offer remains on the table, he added.
Recapping the major events from the week, the spokesperson said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Maldives on the invitation of Maldives’ President Abdulla Yameen.
Zakaria conveyed Pakistan’s deep gratitude to the Afghan government on the safe recovery of two diplomatic officials of the Consulate General of Pakistan in Jalalabad. He said Pakistan does not believe in blame game, adding that hurling of accusations was detrimental to efforts of establishing peace in the region.
