RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Babar Iftikhar has said that Pakistan has exposed Indian state sponsorship of terrorism in its dossier containing incontrovertible evidence.
In an interview with Global Village Space, DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said that Pakistan’s dossier containing irrefutable evidence of India’s sponsorship of terrorism in Pakistan has exposed New Delhi’s nefarious designs at the international level.

He said that a copy of the dossier was also submitted to the office of the United Nations Secretary General’s office.

Answering about next steps of Pakistan, the DG ISPR said that Foreign Office presented the dossier to P5 and UN Secretary General and now Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has released a very strongly worded statement about what is happening in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. He further said that Pakistan will take the dossier to every possible forum and series of action are being taken in this regard.
When asked about the nature of threat from anti-CPEC cell which reports directly to Indian PM Narendra Modi, the DG said that Indians see CPEC as a game changer and with this project Pakistan becoming a connectivity hub for the whole region.
The CPEC is facing security threats and now India has started talking about starting and ending the CPEC route in a bid to make the project controversial. India wants to retard the pace of the project as it has decided that there is a timeline after which this project becomes irreversible, he revealed.
Answering a question about taking the issue of Afghan soil use with the country’s government, he said that Pakistan keeps having these conversations with them and also shared the details of the dossier; however we also acknowledge capacity issues of Afghan government and that is why Pakistan does not blame them.

He also said that India is trying to divert the attention of the world to Pakistan through the LoC violations because “India understands whether they fire at or we fire at them it is Kashmiris that are being hurt and through this they are trying to drive a wedge between Pakistan Army and people living in the region.”
He said that Pakistan wants to ensure better management of western border and for that purpose the country is fencing the border as it is very porous. He also revealed that by the end of this month Pakistan will have completely fence its border with Afghanistan.
