Our rulers made compromises for their own interests: Kh Asif
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said that in the past, the country’s rulers have made compromises for their own interests.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Friday, he said that Pakistan will not be a proxy for any other country, adding that it will only protect its own interests.
The minister said that the Daesh was not eliminated but it has changed its address.
Asif went on to say that since the beginning of this year, the Indian occupation forces carried out more than 400 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary, resulting in the martyrdom of 18 innocent Pakistani civilians.
He said heavy weapons, including mortars were frequently being used by the Indian Forces, on the civilian population on the Pakistani side of the LOC and the Working Boundary.
The escalation along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary was an attempt to divert the attention of the international community from Indian atrocities in IOK, he added.
