President Dr. Arif Alvi says despite Indian belligerence, Pakistan has always made continuous strides for peace in the region.
Addressing the International Conference: Global Strategic threat and Response in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said Pakistan understands the value of peace and rejecting the war. He said Prime Minister Imran Khan in his first speech talked about peace with India. He said as a peace overture, we also returned the Indian pilot after shooting down their aircraft.
The President noted that it was because of the threat of war from the neighboring country that we started on the track of nuclear weapons to secure ourselves.
The President strongly regretted the killing of Muslims and minorities in India. He expressed disappointment that other countries have not taken much notice of the situation out of their own vested interests. He reminded that it is the same Modi who was denied the US visa.
Arif Alvi said peace is elusive in the world and it cannot be achieved through wars. He said wars have always been used for exploitation and plunder but the humanity is not learning from these bad experiences. He lamented that new instruments are now being developed and introduced to wage wars.
