Pakistan Army chief General Raheel Sharif on Monday claimed that India was not serious about resolving “historical disputes” such as the Kashmir issue, and accused its spy agency of “exploiting” the security situation on the border with Afghanistan.
“India is unwilling to address historical disputes like Kashmir that directly fan misunderstanding and feed into persistent regional culture of conflict,” Gen Sharif said in Stutgart, Germany, where was on a day-long visit to attend a conference of Chief of Staffs of the Armed Force being held under the auspices of US Centcom.
He accused India of exploiting the security situation on the border with Afghanistan and added that terrorists could move across borders because of no effective border management systems in place there.
“This is exploited by the anti-Pakistan intelligence agencies such as RAW,” he said.
The Pakistan army chief said a stable Afghanistan is a guarantee to a peaceful and stable region and peace in the war-ravaged country could be achieved through a comprehensive and coordinated strategy.
“Route to a peaceful and prosperous region runs through a stable Afghanistan, which is achievable through comprehensive and coordinated approach,” he said.
He said Pakistan is making “all out efforts” to eliminate terrorism and it has suffered the most due to the menace compared to any other country in the world.
