India threat to regional peace, says PM Imran Khan in China

Beijing, February 05 (KMS): Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is on a four-day visit to China, cited India’s aggressive behaviour and the prevailing Hindutva ideology as a threat to regional peace and a cause of lingering instability of the region.

The prime minister’s remarks came in an exclusive session with the heads and representatives of leading Chinese think tanks, universities and the Pakistan Study Centre in Beijing on Saturday.

Imran Khan said the present Indian regime is causing long-lasting instability in the region. “The atrocities of India are continuing in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). The world should pay attention to the ongoing atrocities of India against Kashmiris,” he maintained.

The prime minister also thanked China for its unwavering support on the Kashmir dispute, semphasising the importance of Pak-China relations and ensuring regional stability and prosperity.

“In view of myriad global challenges, the world did not need another Cold War. Divisions could result in mounting sufferings and prevent common benefits. Pakistan is, therefore, of the belief that the key driver in international politics should be cooperation, rather than confrontation,” he said.

He recalled that Pakistan in the past had played a role in building bridges and remains ready to do so again.
