India creating senseless propaganda against CPEC, diverting attention from Kashmir issue: Pak PM

Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said India is creating baseless propaganda against the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

In an interview with Radio Pakistan, the Pak premier said that New Delhi was using negative tactics to divert the attention of the international community form Kashmir issue.

“Pakistan is ready for meaningful dialogue with India, despite the fact that nothing good is expected from New Delhi,” he said.

India is creating baseless propaganda against China Pakistan Economic Corridor, Abbasi maintained.

Earlier on Saturday, while responding to the reservations raised by US over the China-Pakistan Econo­mic Corridor (CPEC), Islamabad had asserted that “CPEC is a development and connectivity project for the betterment of the people in the region and beyond”, and urged the international community to rather focus on the human rights violations committed by Indian forces in held Kashmir.

Abbasi said ties between Pakistan and the United States are based on decades-old diplomatic, political and historical affinities and could not be defined with the sole issue of Afghanistan.

“Both countries are committed to remaining engaged over a range of issues, including the issue of war on terror,” the premier was quoted as saying.

Abbasi, while taking about Kashmir added that the issue should be resolved according to the aspirations of Kashmiris in line with United Nations Security Council resolutions.

“Kashmiris should be given right of a plebiscite to decide their fate.”

Pakistan will continue its moral, political and diplomatic support to Kashmiris in their just struggle for the right to self-determination, he added.
