Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz on Sunday said that Pakistan’s acquisition of nuclear power “smashed India’s dreams”.
Aziz was addressing a gathering of the Nazaria Pakistan Council where he also said that Pakistan’s enemies would not succeed in sabotaging the China-Pak Economic Corridor (CPEC).
“Pakistan’s adversaries have started their conspiracies to sabotage the Pak-China Economic Corridor, but make it clear that enemies’ nefarious designs will never succeed.”
He also said India’s desire for regional hegemony would not be allowed, and stated that economic prosperity and self-reliance are imperative to a strong defence.
The adviser said Pakistan ─ and the entire region’s future ─ was dependent on the completion of the CPEC.
Talking about the war on terrorism, Sartaj Aziz said Pakistan has to fight a war against evil ideologies, including extremism and terrorism, which are harming the country.
Aziz’s assertions follow statements by the Pakistan Army that Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) is involved in terrorism in Pakistan.
