Pakistan accuses US of favoring India, warns of nuclear war
Pakistan's National Security Advisor Nasser Khan Janjua has accused America of siding with India on the Kashmir issue and on Afghanistan's security. He has warned that the nuclear war in South Asia can't be ruled out because of the delicate security situation in the region. His statement comes amid simmering Indo-Pak ties. The Trump administration has repeatedly slammed Pakistan for providing terror safe havens.
Pakistan: South Asia is a "mistake away" from nuclear war
"The stability of the South Asian region hangs in a delicate balance, and the possibility of nuclear war cannot be ruled out," Janjua said. "India has been stockpiling a range of dangerous weapons as it threatens Pakistan continuously of conventional warfare," he added. Janjua believes South Asia is a "mistake away" from nuclear catastrophe which is why special efforts are needed to maintain balance.
US prioritizing India on Afghanistan, Kashmir
Janjua feels America is siding with India while ignoring Pakistan's "enormous sacrifices in the fight against terrorism" "India is being given priority over Pakistan in Afghanistan, something that will shape the political and strategic dynamics of the war-torn country," he said. "The US-India alliance has an identical stance on the Kashmir issue, and America frequently gives India preference over Pakistan," he added.
Pakistan accuses US-India of conspiring against CPEC
Janjua has accused America and India of conspiring against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as part of Washington's wider policy of limiting China's influence in the South Asian region.
Pakistan: US is 'exporting war, creating instability in South Asia'
Janjua regretted the US' allegations that Pakistan played a "double game" by providing the Taliban and Haqqani Network "safe havens." He said the US is "exporting war and perpetual instability to South Asia." He said Pakistan only started facing problems from terrorism, particularly from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, after it started supporting the US-backed coalition's military operations in Afghanistan.
