Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Security, Moeed Yusuf said India is trying to spread the narrative in occupied Kashmir that it has reached an agreement with Pakistan on the disputed territory.
“India is spreading a narrative in occupied Kashmir that there has been an agreement [with Pakistan] on [the disputed] territory,” Yusuf told reporters in Lahore on Saturday.
The SAPM, who was talking today to media in the backdrop of his recent interview with Indian journalist Karan Thappar, said that he felt disappointed out of one of the feedback that he got regarding the interview.
“90% feedback said that it was the first time that Pakistan gave a befitting response to India,” claimed Yusuf. He added that the feedback meant that Pakistan was presenting its case out of fear and on the back foot.
“What is there to fear. Have we stolen something? Someone else is doing the stealing here,” said the prime minister’s aide. He added that what the Narendra Modi-led government was doing in Kashmir should make them New Delhi defensive and it should not be the other way around.
He explained that this was the approach that he had gone into the panel with. He also added that as a representative of Pakistan, he had told India during the interview that its “basic message” was that of peace.
