India has launched unconventional war on Pakistan: Gen Riaz


India has launched unconventional war on Pakistan Gen Riaz

QUETTA: A key commander of Pakistan Army Lt-Gen Aamir Riaz who heads the Corps XII  Southern Command, has said that India has launched an unconventional war on Pakistan. 

He was offering his condolences to journalists at the Quetta Press Club over the death of two cameramen in the Quetta blasts, where he said that India was responsible for spreading chaos and anarchy in the country.

He said that this was evident from the arrest of RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav, who was a serving Indian naval officer and had confessed to carrying out subversive activities in the province.

The comments come after an increasing evidence of the interference of Indian intelligence Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in the province of Balochistan.

Earlier today, Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said Pakistan could not rule out the involvement of India in planning and facilitating major attacks inside its territory. He raised apprehensions that the network of Kulbushan Yadav was still active and was plotting further attacks.

Gen. Aamir Riaz also said that misguided people were spreading terrorism in the name of religion, while there were internal and external conspiracies being hatched against the country.

He assured that there were peace in the country and the Pakistan Army will spare no effort to assist the families of those who lost their lives in Quetta attack.

RAW involvement: ‘No finger-pointing without proofs’

A close collaboration between Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS) would help check terrorist activities, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said on Friday.

Addressing a press conference here, the Advisor expressed confidence that a close ISI-NDS working relationship would result in effective border management with Afghanistan.

Sartaj Aziz said the response by Pakistani border forces in retaliation to firing from terrorists and drug smugglers to trespass, was often mistaken by Afghan side as unprovoked firing from Pakistan.

A trust-worthy exchange of information and intelligence sharing would check the inflow of terrorists, he added.

The Adviser said though several clues pointed to involvement of Indian intelligence agency RAW in the recent Quetta terrorist incident; however “Pakistan would not want finger-pointing without solid proof”.

He said the Indian serving officer Kalbhushun Yadav arrested on spying charges was running a network in Pakistan and investigations were in progress to find his links with the Quetta incident. – APP
