Defence Minister Khurram Dastagir Khan has said India is involved in terrorism activities on the route of the multibillion-dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Referring to the arrest of self-confessed Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, Khurram said: “Calling India the region’s ‘only’ peace-maker is wrong. Kulbhushan Jadhav’s arrest is the biggest evidence of New Delhi’s involvement in terror activities in Pakistan,” he said while addressing the CPEC conference held in Islamabad on Wednesday.


“Although every country can benefit from the biggest economic project, India is involved in nothing but carrying out directly or indirectly terrorism activities on the CPEC route, the minister added.

‘India won’t allow IoK to be part of CPEC’

Geographical location and policy of confrontation among countries are creating obstacles for the regional development, Khurram said. “Indo-Pak dispute is also a hurdle on the path to development”.

The CPEC project, the minister said, is confronted with numerous challenges while conspiracies are being hatched to limit China’s influence in the region. “Pak-China relations are not against any country but in favour of the regional development and differences can be resolved through dialogue,” he added.

Referring to Trump’s statement and America’s policy on terrorism, he said: “Many countries didn’t accept the US policy as according to them it had strategic flaws. Pakistan’s sacrifices for the regional peace are however being neglected”.

Khurram went on to say that New Delhi is blaming Islamabad for its diplomatic issues while state oppression against those fighting for their rights is rampant in the occupied Kashmir. “The two neighbouring countries can move towards betterment by resolving the Kashmir issue
