Responding to a question at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad today, he said Pakistan’s armed forces remain prepared for misadventure and are fully capable of defending countries’ geographical boundaries. Answering a question, he said Pakistan wants the resolution of all outstanding disputes, including the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, with India through dialogue, but that must be meaningful and result-oriented. He said the onus is on India to create an enabling environment for talks.
Regarding Islamabad’s offer of relief support to New Delhi in the wake of the worsening Covid situation in India, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said Pakistan has offered relief support to India as a gesture of solidarity.
Replying to a question on US Commission on International Religious Freedom report, he said Pakistan believes that the report’s findings on Pakistan lack objectivity besides making unsubstantiated assertions.
