Pakistan on Monday categorically rejected “unwarranted and irresponsible” comments made by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, insinuating that Pakistan and China are deliberately creating border disputes with India.

“Indian minister’s statement demonstrates an inexcusable lack of self-awareness of RSS-BJP regime’s self-serving narrative. It is also another manifestation of the Indian government’s incurable obsession with Pakistan,” Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said in a statement.

He said that Pakistan also condemned the malicious Indian propaganda against the longstanding, close Pakistan-China friendship. "It is preposterous for a country that is compulsively expansionist and a brazen practitioner of state-terrorism, to level charges against others," he added.

Zahid said that the world community was well aware of political opportunism of the RSS-BJP regime, which he said is imperilling peace, stability and security of the region. "It is India that not only creates disputes with neighbours but also runs away from peacefully resolving them," he added.

Rather than jeopardising peace and stability of the region, including by perpetrating state-terrorism as a tool to advance its extremist (Hindutva) ideology and expansionist (Akhand Bharat) designs, FO spokesperson said, India should seriously consider course correction by giving up its aggressive agenda and peacefully resolving disputes with its neighbours.
