Pakistan says the news of Indian involvement in an extrajudicial killing in Canada has shown that India's network of extra-territorial killings has now gone global.
Responding to a question at her weekly media briefing in Islamabad today, Foreign Office Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said for decades, Indian intelligence agency RAW has been actively involved in abductions and assassinations in South Asia.
She said Pakistan has remained a target of a series of targeted killings and espionage by RAW. In December last year, Pakistan released a comprehensive dossier providing concrete and irrefutable evidence of India's involvement in the Lahore attack of June 2021. The attack was planned and executed by Indian intelligence.
She said in 2016, a high-ranking Indian military officer Commander Kulbhushan Yadav confessed his involvement in directing, financing and executing terror and sabotage in Pakistan.
Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said India's assassination of a Canadian national on Canadian soil is a clear violation of international law and the UN principle of state sovereignty.
She said it is also a reckless and irresponsible act that calls into question India's reliability as a credible international partner and its claims for enhanced global responsibilities.
