The federal government has decided to hold a high-level huddle next week to take major decisions to ‘monitor’ and ‘tackle’ the activities of India’s premier intelligence agency RAW in Pakistan, BBC Urdu reported on Saturday.
The meeting will review evidence of the agency’s involvement in recent incidents of terrorism in Karachi, Balochistan and other areas.
According to an official of the interior ministry, the consultations will be held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and will be attended by heads of civilian and military intelligence agencies as well as civilian and military higher-ups.
Based on the discussions, the government will decide how to effectively counter and limit RAW’s activities in the country and raise the issue at an international level.
Army chief General Raheel Sharif on Friday said tough measures would be adopted to halt the activities of anti-Pakistan foreign spy agencies.
The interior ministry official also revealed that RAW had intensified its efforts to destabilise Pakistan soon after the recent agreements between Pakistan and China were inked, as evident in the report sent by the intelligence agencies to the ministry.
Pakistan has already conveyed the evidences against RAW to the Indian government, the official added.
