QUETTA: Former Ambassador to Oman Nawabzada Aminullah Raisani said on Tuesday India does not accept Gwadar-Kahsgar trade route of the China, Pakistan Economic Corridor.
“India and its intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), are involved in terrorist activities in the province to destabilise the country,” the former ambassador said, while addressing a press conference with former Balochistan chief minister Nawab Aslam Raisani at the Quetta Press Club.
“Bomb blasts and targetted killings cannot stop the development work in the province,” said Aslam Raisani, adding the sacrifices of Pakistan Army won’t go to waste.
The southern corridor begins from Guangzhou, which is the third largest city of China in South Central China. This route moves towards western parts of China and connects Kashgar with Pakistan at Kunjarab, a point from where China wants to link to Gwadar port in the Arabian Sea.
Meanwhile, regarding the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, the former chief minister said conspiracies against Pakistan Army were not acceptable, and the MQM should free itself from Altaf Hussain if it were a patriotic party.
On June 1, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj expressed concern over CPEC, saying Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi “very strongly” raised the economic corridor issue during his recent visit to Beijing, and termed the project “unacceptable”.
“Prime minster during his visit took up the issue very firmly and spoke very strongly that the CPEC going through PoK (Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) is unacceptable,” Swaraj had said at a press conference.
