Pakistan only acted when Indian forces violated LoC: FS Janjua

Islamabad (Staff Report): Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua has said that Pakistan only acted when Indian forces violated the Line of Control (LoC).


While addressing the International Conference on ‘Shanghai Cooperation Organisation; Future Prospects and Regional Connectivity’ organised by the Centre for Global and Strategic Studies on Tuesday, Janjua appreciated the role of the international community in de-escalating tensions between Pakistan and India.

She said Islamabad had taken several steps such as the opening of Kartarpur Corridor and Samjotha Express for regional peace. The FS maintained that Pakistan wants a solution to Kashmir issue according to the United Nations resolution.

According to Janjua, long-lasting peace in Afghanistan could only be achieved through talks between Afghans. “The Afghans will have to determine their own future.”

“Pakistan is willing to play its role in the Afghan-peace process,” she added.
