ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcast Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday said the world must realise Pakistan-India conflict will lead to regional, global destabilisation.
"World must realise Pakistan-India conflict will destabilise region and later the world at large, Fawad tweeted.
“World will be more divided and extremism at new peaks.... extremism will be ultimate winner ... Pakistan, India and the world will loose.... let’s work together to avert this situation,” the information minister added.
Earlier, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari urged India and said it must reciprocate Prime Minister Imran Khan's call for dialogue and called for de-escalation before it is too late.
"It is the youth of the subcontinent who will pay in blood and coin for generations to come for the shortsighted decisions of a few today," Bilawal tweeted.
"Pakistan’s Prime Minister’s call for dialogue must be reciprocated, time to deescalate before it’s too late," the PPP chairman added.
Tensions between Pakistan and India have heightened after New Delhi without any proof blamed Pakistan for harbouring terrorists behind the Pulwama attack. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan in response called for dialogue and urged India to provide actionable intelligence.
On Tuesday, Indian military aircraft had violated the LoC as they "intruded" from the Muzaffarabad sector and were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force.
Pakistan on Wednesday confirmed it had shot down two Indian aircraft which had crossed over the Line of Control (LoC) and taken one Indian pilot in custody.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in his speech on Wednesday once again invited India for talks, stressing “better sense should prevail.”
Director General Inter Services Public Relations (DG ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor also called on the international community to play its role. “Pakistan is sending a message of peace and they [international community] should also come forward and see how the environment between India and Pakistan are a threat to peace and development not only to the two countries but the region and beyond,” DG ISPR said.
