Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations (UN) Dr Maleeha Lodhi during in an interview with US news channel said that the Indian leadership is failing to respond to the Prime Minister [Imran Khan’s] repeated gestures [of peace], which included the release of Indian pilot.
While talking about dossier given by Indian authorities regarding Pulwama attack, she said: “We keep asking the Indians to give us what they have and we will act on it,” the ambassador said. “We are examining the dossier to see if there is anything in there which we need to act upon. We will act if there is any solid evidence, but we cannot act on the basis of allegations,” she added.
Responding to a question about Kashmir, she said “It has to be addressed, in its own right and [on] its own merits because it will remain an issue that will lead to repeated tensions between India and Pakistan and in any case it is an issue that is on the Security Council agenda and it has resolutions that remain unimplemented,” the ambassador added.
“Both [Afghanistan] and [Kashmir] issues are important in their own right. But it is the eastern border, from where India attacked Pakistan,” ambassador Lodhi said. “They sent planes into our territory. That’s a hot border.”
