South Asian region is a hot-spot, it could flare up at any time: PM

News Desk

Pakistan expects from the United States (US) an even-handed treatment with respect to India, especially on the Kashmir dispute, the Prime Minister Imran Khan has said, adding that the South Asian region is a hot-spot and it could flare up at any time.

According to media reports, the Prime Minister has made these remarks in an interview with a German magazine in Islamabad. He said that the US thinks that India will contain China, which is a completely flawed premise.

Imran Khan further said that India is a threat to its neighbours, including China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. He said India has currently the most extremist and racist government on the subcontinent, inspired by the Nazis of 1920s and 30s.

On the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan having established relations with Israel, Imran Khan said every country has its own foreign policy but Pakistan cannot recognize Israel unless there is a just settlement of the Palestinian issue.

On the issue of Afghanistan, the Premier said from day one, his government has been fostering dialogue to resume peace in that country. He said Pakistan has no favourites in Afghanistan and our only interest is that the future government in Kabul does not allow India to operate from there against us.
