NEW YORK - Addressing an event in New York, Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said Islamabad is not in favor of any military or political role for India in Afghanistan, AP reported.      

"India, we don't foresee any military or political or military role for India in Afghanistan,” Abbasi said. 

“I think it will just complicate the situation and it will not resolve anything. So if they want to do economic assistance, that's their prerogative. But we don't accept or see any role politically or militarily for India in Afghanistan."

He said Pakistan has received no foreign aid in the fight against "terror".

"We are today fighting an active war against terror with our own resources. This impression that any resources came from abroad is not correct. We fought the war with our own resources and we defeated the terrorists," he said. 

He accused India of aggression along the border with Pakistan and said Pakistan's nuclear weapons program was absolutely safe.

"There is Indian aggression along the line of control, mostly to draw attention away from the genuine struggle of the Kashmiri people, who are today risen against Indian occupation there. And we fully support the right of self-determination, we've fully supported that at every forum since 1948,” he said.  

Abbasi also expressed support for Pakistan's relationship with the United States.
