Pakistan Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said on Monday that after suffering the greatest ‘defeat’ in Afghanistan, India is funding local criminals in Pakistan to create internal problems in his country. According to him, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was engaging local criminals in Pakistan to sabotage peace in that country.
Addressing the Senate he said there were several terrorist outfits operating in Balochistan, including Daesh, Tehreek-i-Taliban (TTP) Pakistan, Balochistan Republican Army and some Al Qaeda offshoots, were operating. He, however, said his country’s security forces were “vigilant and will continue to take action against terrorists who want to destabilise the country. Government was not holding talks with TTP anymore.”
Addressing the matter of talks between the government and proscribed TTP today, Rashid said the talks were not being held anymore. “Talks are not possible with those [elements] who are against the integrity of Pakistan,” he added.
