Islamabad: A day after its failure to get anything from the closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Saturday that Islamabad is dealing with Doval doctrine in “Modi’s Hindustan” as against “Nehru’s Hindustan”.
Qureshi addressed a joint press conference with Director General, Inter-Services Public Relations (DGISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor after the first meeting of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s special committee on Kashmir.
The Pak Foreign Minister heads the committee which also has ISI Chief Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed, DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor, Law Minister Farogh Nasim, special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan, the parliamentary committee on Kashmir chairperson Fakhar Imam and Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor Khan as members.
The committee decided to set up a Kashmir cell in the Foreign Office. Kashmir desks will also be established in some of the Pakistan missions in the world capitals. Qureshi was quoted by Pakistan media as saying that Islamabad was dealing with Doval doctrine, a reference to India’s National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval who is feared in Pak as the architect of New Delhi’s new aggressive approach in dealing with external threats. Qureshi reportedly said that Modi has buried Nehru’s India. He also claimed that the Pakistan Army was ready to defend the country against any military action from the Indian side. (IANS)
