Pakistan decides to seek UN probe into India’s use of Pegasus spyware against country’s top officials

Islamabad, July 25 (KMS): Pakistan has decided to seek United Nations probe into India’s use of Pegasus spyware against country’s top officials.

This was announced by Advisor to the Prime Minister, Shahzad Akbar along with Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain during a press briefing in Islamabad.

He urged the United Nations to investigate whether India used Israeli-made Pegasus spyware to spy on public figures including Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The Adviser said according to the investigation of France-based international media and Amnesty International, Prime Minister Imran Khan is on a list of those people for whom this spyware was used by India.

Terming it an attack on the national security and sovereignty of Pakistan, Shahzad Akbar said this Indian act is clear breach of global norms of responsible state behaviour.

He said in view of the gravity of international reports on the matter, we call on the relevant UN bodies to thoroughly investigate the matter, bring the facts to light, and hold the Indian perpetrators to account.

The Adviser said, “We will also investigate the matter formally through our inter agencies, utilizing the services of our Foreign Office and FIA.”

Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Pakistan wants peaceful, all-inclusive government in Afghanistan.

He said, “We stand with our Afghan brethren and for this purpose we rendered many sacrifices for Afghan refugees.”
