Don't endorse the Indian viewpoint on CPEC: Pak to US”

The Ambassador traced a long history of friendship and cooperation between Pakistan and his country and said there was a vast scope for expansion of bilateral relations between Pakistan and Poland.

In an indirect reference to India, Pakistan urged the United States to judge the country on its own merit, "instead of tagging it to other states and issues in the region", the Dawn reported. It is not a security plan.

He said Poland believed that there were vast possibilities of progress for Pakistan in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor framework and also expressed his government's desire to join this endeavour subsequently. This was seen in Islamabad as a direct endorsement of India's position on the project, which passes through PoK.

India insists that since the northern part of Pakistan was once associated with the former Kashmir state, it's a disputed territory.

Talking to the Ambassador, Nasser Janjua said Poland was an important country and Pakistan highly valued bilateral relations with it. The country has played and will continue to play the most significant role in bringing peace and stability in the region.

Ahsan Iqbal stated this while addressing a gathering of students, academicians, analysts, and media persons at an exclusive event organized by the Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in Washington.

He also remarked, while reiterating Pakistan's firm support of the worldwide community's efforts of bringing peace to Afghanistan, that Afghanistan's problem was not a military problem and therefore there was no military solution to it. "We have our own dignity and want others to respect that", he said. "So, it's necessary that the USA should view the situation from an independent perspective, not from someone else's point of view", the minister said.

A holistic regional approach aimed at finding a political solution is required and Pakistan will play its due role in any such efforts, he added. "Pakistan and China will foil all the attempts being made by the opponents of the project, who are criticising it without realising its importance for the region as well as the world".
