India's RAW is aiming to undermine CPEC: CJCSC

According to Radio Pakistan, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Zubair Mehmood Hayat says Pakistan is not oblivious to its defense. He also accused India of fanning terrorism in the restive province of Balochistan.

Addressing a conference organsied by Islamabad Policy Research Institute, the top general said that India was stoking chaos and anarchy in the region.

India is trying to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project through its intelligence agency RAW, a senior Pakistani military officer said on Tuesday.

Speaking about India's growing aggression toward's Pakistan, he said: "I believe India continues to engage Pakistan through an asymmetric strategy and ploys".

He added: "It is even making an endeavour to subsume conventional methods, such as surgical strikes - phantom or otherwise - into the realm of sub-conventional war".

"Add to this India's growing [military] force and 80 per cent Pakistan-centric force potential - India is playing with fire", Gen Zubair concluded.

Against Pakistan, the general said, India and so far martyred 1,000 citizens of the country and 300 soldiers. The General claimed that India has violated ceasefire more than 1,200 times, thereby continuing its years-old war against Pakistan. However, he added, factors such as those of weak governance and flawed reconciliation process are some of the causes of instability in Afghanistan.

He said Pakistan had been in the eye of a storm since 1979 when Russian Federation intervened in Afghanistan and Iran went through a revolution.

"It is Pakistan that is paying a high price for instability in Afghanistan", he noted. Therefore, in view of the circumstances, Pakistan will keep minimum nuclear deterrence, he added.
