Pakistan condemns ex-canadian minister’s remark about pakistan on afghan situation

Responding to this baseless assertion of Alexander, Pakistan’s Foreign Office said that Pakistan had taken up the matter with the government of Canada.

SLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Office strongly condemned remarks of a former Canadian minister Chris Alexander about Pakistan on Afghan situation with a view that his comments showed a lack of understanding of the Afghan peace process as well as ignorance about facts on the ground and Pakistan’s efforts for peace in the neighbouring country.

In its tweet, the FO said: “We strongly condemn the unwarranted comments by former Canadian minister Chris Alexander, making unfounded & misleading assertions about…Pakistan’s role in #AfghanPeaceProcess. Such remarks betray a complete lack of understanding of the issue as well as ignorance of facts on ground.”

In his message shared on Twitter, Mr Alexander said: “Taliban fighters waiting to cross the border from Pakistan to Afghanistan… anyone still denying that Pakistan is engaged in an ‘act of aggression’ against Afghanistan is complicit in proxy war & war crimes.”

Responding to this baseless assertion of Alexander, Pakistan’s Foreign Office said that Pakistan had taken up the matter with the government of Canada. “We have urged the Canadian authorities to take steps to address this motivated and malicious smear campaign.”

The FO also reiterated Pakistan’s policy on Afghanistan and said that international powers had begun to appreciate what Prime Minister Imran Khan had been saying since long. “Now when the world has acknowledged what…Pakistan & PM @ImranKhanPTI have consistently maintained abt there being no military solution to the conflict in #Afghanistan & the need for an inclusive, broad-based & comprehensive political settlement, such gratuitous commentary is deplorable,” it added.
