India is allegedly involved in "sabotaging peace and creating trouble and instability" in Pakistan's Balochistan province and the tribal belt bordering Afghanistan, country's defence minister said on Wednesday.

Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar brought up Pakistan-India relations and India's involvement in Afghanistan during a meeting with visiting British Minister of State for Armed Forces Bill Rammell.

He said the world community should take note of India's alleged involvement in sabotaging peace and creating trouble in Baluchistan and tribal areas.

"Pakistan wants India to restrict herself to the development of Afghanistan and stop supporting terrorist activities in Pakistan so that durable stability could be brought to the region," Mukhtar was quoted as saying in an official statement.

Mukhtar told Rammell that the regional approach towards Afghanistan is "unlikely to produce fruitful results unless the sensitivities of neighbouring countries, particularly Pakistan, are addressed."

The US-led coalition forces in Afghanistan "need to understand and address Pakistan's concern in this regard," he added.
