Pakistan Foreign Office responds to the BRICS declaration in a befitting manner

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman said that Pakistan is seriously concerned about the threat posed by terrorism and extremism in the South Asian region.

Many terrorist groups based in the region, including in Afghanistan, such as the TTP and its associates like Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) have been responsible for extreme acts of violence against Pakistani people.

“We are deeply concerned at the presence of groups like Daesh, ETIM and IMU in the ungoverned spaces in Afghanistan as they pose a threat to peace and security in the region,” the spokesman said.

“Pakistan also remains concerned at the rise of extremist ideologies and intolerance in the region encouraging social stratification and systematic targeting of minorities.”
