Pakistan needs to understand that the world has seen through their provocative and unsubstantiated rhetoric which is based on lies and deceit.” Asking Pakistan to start behaving like a normal neighbour, Kumar said: “What do normal neighbours do, they do not push terrorists in a neighbouring country. You do normal talk, normal trade.” “We are all aware Pakistan has been using cross-border terrorism as an instrument of its state policy. We have been continuing to highlight our concerns with them. Pakistan has an obligation to take action against terrorists and terror groups operating from its soil,” he said. On Pakistan Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari writing a letter to 18 UN officials, Kumar said he does not want to lend any credence to the letter by reacting to it. “They should see what is happening in their house before making statements and everybody knows what is happening, their house is on fire,” he said. Asked about intelligence inputs of a possible infiltration by terrorists through the sea route, Kumar confirmed that there have been such inputs and said that security forces are prepared to “deal with any eventuality”. On some international organisations raising concerns with India on rights issues, Kumar said India ‘completely rejects” such unsubstantiated statements. Meanwhile, the MEA also said Pakistan has not issued any statement confirming the closure of air space for Indian flights. Earlier in the day, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said no decision has been taken yet to close the airspace to India, and added that any such step would be taken after looking into each and every aspect of the move through consultation.last_img read more
