Pakistan warns Indian action on eastern borders can disrupt peace efforts on western borders
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan warns Indian action on eastern borders can disrupt peace efforts on western borders.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has linked the situation at Line of Control (LoC) with ongoing Afghan peace process saying action by the Indian army is a "distraction".
Indian and Pakistani Armies have traded heavy fire along the LoC in the last few days. The Centre has also asked tourists and Amarnath Yatris to leave Kashmir in light of a fresh terror threat in the Valley.
Speaking to a Pakistani media channel, he said, "On one hand the Afghan peace process is going through a critical stage. US Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad has reached Doha after a successful visit to Islamabad. He has an important meeting in Doha.
The action by the Indian army is a distraction. These spoilers can impact peace."
The last time such a statement was made after the Pulwama attack, Kabul summoned Pakistani envoy to Afghanistan to mark its protest.
