India regrets Pak NSA refusal: Pakistan’s National Security Adviser (NSA) Moeed Yousuf has said that India will not attend the Afghanistan summit on November 10. At the same time, he rejected India’s role as a peacemaker in Afghanistan. India had invited Pakistan to attend a regional conference on Afghanistan hosted by its NSA Ajit Doval.
India has retaliated against Pakistan’s decision. Government sources said, “It is very indecent for the Pak NSA to refuse such an invitation through the media, and the choice of words like spoiler for India is a sign of their tough stance. He may have declined the invitation through the formal diplomatic route. But the truth is that his decision was unfortunate and indecent.
What did the Pakistani foreign minister say?
On November 10 (Yusuf told reporters that he was not going to India to attend the summit on Afghanistan in India), The Express Tribune reported. Responding to a question at a news conference, Yusuf said the “disruptor” could not play a peacekeeping role, the report said. Earlier, Pakistan’s foreign office confirmed India’s call, but said a decision would be taken in due course.
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan’s decision will depend on the current state of relations between nuclear-armed neighbors. Yusuf said, “Western nations would be happy to sit 10,000 miles away (from Afghanistan), but we have no choice but to stay away from Afghanistan.” “Talking to Afghanistan is not a political issue of Pakistan, it is a humanitarian issue and it is about our national security,” he said.
