FO: (Pakistan decides to apprise UN about Indian interference)

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided to acquaint the United Nations (UN) about its concerns on Indian interference in Pakistan.

At the weekly news briefing here on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said, the National Security Advisor level talks between Pakistan and India could not take place due to preconditions from the Indian side.

He said Pakistan had clearly stated that any preconditions would not be acceptable for the talks. To a question, the spokesperson said Pakistan’s role is that of facilitator in Afghan peace process.

He reminded that Pakistan hosted and facilitated the first round of talks between Afghan government and Taliban. It is now up to the Afghans to decide the future course of action about talks, he added.

He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is expected to visit United States this year on the invitation of US President Barrack Obama.

Dates for the visit are still being worked out. He said Pakistan and the United States enjoy excellent relations and both the sides discuss all issues including cooperation in the defence field.
