ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly on Thursday passed a unanimous resolution condemning irresponsible and hostile statements against Pakistan from the Indian ruling leadership.

The resolution, moved by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, affirmed that Pakistan will never allow any country to violate its territory under any pretext. It said people of Pakistan and armed forces are fully capable of protecting sovereignty, and territorial integrity of Pakistan would give a befitting response to any threat from India.

Through the resolution, the National Assembly urged the international community especially the United Nations to take notice of such provocative statements by Indian leadership which not only negatively impact but are a direct threat for prospects of regional peace and stability.

The resolution said statements by Indian leaders call into question India’s desire to establish good neighbourly relations with Pakistan. The House took serious exception to statement of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Bangladesh in which he acknowledged Indian Government’s conspiracy and involvement in the events of 1971 in the then eastern province of Pakistan.

The resolution said such statements confirm Pakistan’s belief about past and present Indian involvement in destabilizing Pakistan. It said it was an irony that PM Modi was making a case for India’s permanent membership of UN Security Council since India has been in violation of UN Security Council longstanding resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir as well as interfering in the internal affairs of other states in violation of UN charter.

It regretted that the Indian Prime Minister made such a statement in Bangladesh, aimed at stoking hatred against Pakistan. Indian attempts to sow seeds of discord between people of Pakistan and Bangladesh will not succeed.
