Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that if the staff of Pakistan High Commission returns, then the Indian staff will also return. India should also pack 50 percent of the staff of the High Commission. We also intend to reduce the Indian diplomatic staff by 50 percent. They are not able to give an answer to their people about the disgrace that has taken place.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the same response would be given as India would do. The Indian allegations against the staff of the Pakistan High Commission are baseless.
He said that India was hiding its face due to embarrassment at the hands of China and was looking for excuses for the False Flag operation. He said that India would not remain silent on the allegations and would respond.
He further said that India had accused Pakistani diplomats of spying, India had asked for a 50 percent reduction in diplomatic staff, and the attitude towards diplomats in Delhi was a violation of the Vienna Convention.
The Foreign Minister said that India was facing internal challenges, martyrdom was taking place in Kashmir every day, Saudi Arabia and Turkey had rejected the decision in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
He also said that China’s attitude towards maintaining law and order in the region was appropriate, India had built in the disputed area, India’s encroachment had to be acted upon by China, India has suffered economic losses and millions of people have lost their jobs.
On Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s recent statement regarding factionalism in PTI, Shah Mehmood said that some things are not covered by the media.
It may be recalled that on Tuesday, India ordered half of the staff of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi to leave the country after making baseless allegations. Rejected them.
Later, the Foreign Ministry in response ordered half of the staff of the Indian High Commission to leave Pakistan and has been given seven days to comply.
According to the Foreign Office spokesperson, Pakistan categorically rejects Indian allegations of violating the Vienna Convention, always abiding by international law and diplomatic principles, and ugly allegations cannot hide the illegal activities of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.
The spokesperson said that India should focus on internal affairs instead of jeopardizing the peace of South Asia. Such allegations are an attempt to divert attention from state terrorism in occupied Kashmir.
