London: Baloch leader Mehran Marri on Saturday slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for trying to gain sympathy from UN by admitting that Pakistan used to train terrorists earlier but they are now sorry about it.
“This is the first time that Pakistan’s puppet Prime Minister (Imran Khan) accepted, on an international forum like the (United Nations) security council, that it harboured and trained terrorists in the 80s and 90s and now it is sorry for what it did. I think everyone can see through that statement. They are just saying this to get funds from the US in the begging bowl,” Marri said.
Khan, in his address, had accepted Pakistan’s role in training jihadists during the late 1980s and 1990s and maintained contacts with them.
Marri continued, ” Khan tried to portray that his country was a champion of Islam. By reciting a few verses, he tried to gain the support of the Islamic world. But I don’t think that is the case. Everyone knows the reality of Pakistan and its military leadership and its puppet government.”
The Baloch leader heavily mocked at the Pakistani government and deemed Khan’s speech as another failed attempt by the country to drum up global support over the Kashmir issue.
He said,” It is funny to see that the Pakistani military and its operatives are so anxious about the Kashmir issue that they are operating as an NGO, running across the planet, trying to lobby countries to talk about the Kashmir issue.”
“Their incompetence is so visible in the fact that last Friday, they missed the deadline to pass.. gather support for UN resolution on Kashmir. Obviously they did not have the numbers. But to miss the deadline seems like a high school homework that they missed. Incompetence is so visible in this banana reoublic,” he added.
Pakistan’s repeated attempts to gain support globally for the Kashmir issue has failed over time. Meanwhile, India’s stance on the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution has been supported by several countries, including the SAARC nations.
