ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar has said that the French ambassador is not present in Islamabad currently.

Addressing the weekly briefing on Thursday, he said that the appointment of the US ambassador was a routine matter for Pakistan. "Pakistan wants peace and stability in Afghanistan. The foreign minister's visit to Iran is not related to mediation with Saudi Arabia," he said.

The spokesperson, however, refused to comment on the provision of 2,500 Pakistan soldiers to Saudi Arabia.

Responding to the queries of media persons regarding test firing of nuclear capable intercontinental ballistic missile by India, Asim Iftikhar said that New Delhi's hostile posturing toward its neighbours further imperils peace and stability in South Asia.

He said that it must be alarming for the international community that at a time when the region is already facing the growing and real threat of extremist Hindutva Ideology which espouses territorial expansion, the BJP-RSS government is seeking an arms race.

He said that the recent missile test by India will further vitiate the political and security environment in the region.
